Title: Writing to Awaken by Mark Matousek. Editing in Oct. 2016, publication in July 2017. 5-star status on Amazon.
"I've been a journalist and writer for over 30 years and Rena is the best line editor I've ever worked with." Mark Matousek, bestselling author, teacher and speaker.
"I'm working on a collection of talks from The Seekers Forum (2013-2018) with my friend and colleague, Rena Graham, and am quite happy with how it's coalescing! Rena is a samurai with a red pencil, and strong on structure."
“Working with Rena is a study in mutual respect. She refines the structure of my writing to better focus its purpose while still maintaining my voice. I look forward to receiving her notes, which are on target, compelling, with a sharp sense of nuance. She is an essential aid in improving the strength of my stories.”
