writer, editor, publishing coach

Rebecca Ballotta is an award-winning writer, highly esteemed editor, and publishing coach. She has been writing and editing for over 40 years and has been a publishing coach for about 25 of those years. She has dozens of articles and short stories, one self-published book, and various website and marketing content to her credit. Her article, Montana Mad Hatters, was a winner in the 85th Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition: Magazine Feature Article category. As a writer, Rebecca intuitively captures the meaty essence of her subject matter in various literary genres (both fiction and nonfiction) as well as in B2B, online, and marketing content.

On the editing side of things, recent examples of success achieved by authors Rebecca has worked with include one author’s manuscript being accepted by her first-choice publisher within two weeks of submission and released six months later (The Fifth Position), and another author being published on Amazon and hitting #1 within a week in both the U.S. and Canada. These examples demonstrate clear evidence of the importance of working with the right professional editor. In 2017, Rebecca was a featured speaker at the Get Published Conference for Authors where she expounded the whys and hows of working with a professional editor.

As a publishing coach, Rebecca will cheerfully help you maintain your sanity and successfully navigate the complexities of what can be a stressful process.

Whether looking for an editor, a co-author, a ghostwriter, or a publishing accomplice, you need a project partner who “gets” you. Someone who will preserve your voice, tone, and intention. Someone who will be equally passionate about the success of your project, and will hang in there with you until it’s the best it can be. Rebecca will quickly become your favorite go-to writer, editor, and publishing coach for every project.
