“Ronit’s editorial critiques were so spot on and well expressed that I often believed I’d thought of them myself. She’s able to hone in on the heart of a story and help the author fully express that core, while trimming away that which does not serve it.
She was incredibly responsive, whether helping me structure a novel in progress or in refining and line editing one that was more complete.
I am lucky to have had her as my editor on two novels.”
—Allison Amend, author of Enchanted Islands and A Nearly Perfect Copy
“Ronit provided me with a windfall of helpful feedback on my memoir draft—she is a wonderful mentor and ‘midwife.’
She was both supportive and insightful, helping me to draw out the central themes in my book and encouraging me to dig deeper so that I was able to get more ‘blood on the page,’ which was lacking in the original draft.
Her gentle guidance helped me write in a way that was more emotionally compelling for readers. Ronit’s feedback helped me finesse my manuscript so that it was in great shape and ultimately helped me land a US deal.
I am forever grateful!”
—Natasha Scripture, author of Man Fast: a Memoir
“Ronit was an exceptional editor. She seemed to have an intuitive sense of what I was trying to describe and helped me figure out the clearest way to express myself. She was kind, sensitive and generous and always framed her suggestions in an encouraging and empowering way. I learned so much from Ronit.
Her editing made my book immeasurably better.”
—Leah Vincent, author of Cut Me Loose: Sin and Salvation After My Ultra-Orthodox Girlhood
“When you work with Ronit you get more than a talented and seasoned editor, you get a whole team. Ronit’s editorial comments give you at least three or four different kinds of useful reads at once: you get the sharp, savvy evaluations of a senior editor at one of New York’s most prestigious publishers, the visceral reactions of a reader who loves good writing, and the personal touch of your super-smart friend who’s deeply invested in your success. Her comments always go directly to the heart of the matter, without fuss.
Without fail, her edits sent me back to my drafts with renewed energy, clarity, and confidence.”
—Avi Steinberg, author of Running the Books: The Adventures of an Accidental Prison Librarian
