Aanchal is the editor you didn’t know you needed…well, now you know! She’s professional, serious, creative, high-attention to detail. The best way I can summarize my experience: it wasn’t about the money. She took care of my project as if it were her own. She is well versed in many genres, well read across many books, and just fun to engage with. 10/10

This was my first time using Aanchal and I was very impressed. I’ve published 7 novels and was looking for a new editor for my next book. I always want an editor who has worked with one of the major publishing houses and was very pleased to discover Aanchal. Her edits were spot on (grammatically, fact-checking, and with the content). It raised my writing and the book to the next level, and I will be using her for all my future projects books. I recommend her to anyone who wants their book to be on par with authors at the top of their game.
I loved working with Aanchal! She was the first editor I had and she did a fantastic as well as a thorough job in editing. She was able to identify any plot holes in my draft, helping my manuscript reach its greatest potential. Furthermore, we had several discussions that helped me understand how to fix certain gaps in my manuscript, finalizing it into the end product. I would highly recommend her for any other future projects!

Lovely to work with. Quick, thorough, with an excellent sense for what needs fixing to keep readers engaged, and a sharp eye for detail.
Aanchal’s passion and professionalism reverberates with every edit. It felt like working with a co-author who understands the voice of the storyteller. My work, Half A Lion, now has a welcomed sheen. I look forward to working with her on the sequel!
Aanchal is the first editor I’ve used, and any worries or doubts I previously had were quickly dispelled once I began our communications. She was professional, prompt, and her editing was fantastic. She went over my draft with an acute eye for detail and made extremely valuable comments and notes in addition to the checks on grammar. The service I received was invaluable, and I look forward to working with her again.
Jessica LeMore – Author of The Princess of the Rebellion (Book 1 in the The Mirrored Crown series)
I struggled to find an editor that fit my writing style, until I chanced upon Aanchal. I worked with her for developmental and line edits for my second book, The Crystal of Medora (Book 2 in the The Mirrored Crown series). She was professional and accommodating. Edits were a breeze with her. She provided thoughtful chapter analyses, which really helped me delve deeper into the characters and plot. I highly recommend working with her!
Aanchal is absolutely amazing and I’ve entrusted 300k+ words of my novels to her. Her English is impeccable and she has always delivered on time. With her services you are always guaranteed top quality.
Corey Wys – Author
Read Write Relate is incredible friendly and accommodating. They edited a snippet of my debut novel, and their advice could not have been more helpful. I would highly recommend their services.
The moment that I saw what my book could look like, I was hooked! Even the minor changes made my Aanchal made such a large difference in the reading flow. She gave me honest critiques that I knew I needed, offered suggestions, and she works so fast!!
It was such a pleasant experience working with Aanchal! She’s trustworthy and professional, and I fully intend on calling on her with all of my future work.
To top if off, I can honestly say that I have never felt so confident about presenting my novel to a publishing house. She was everything my book needed and I simply can’t say enough great things about her or her work. I am so grateful.
If you have the opportunity to work with her, I definitely recommend it.
Evan Aitchison – Author of Magna-Blade
Aanchal has an excellent command of the English language. Her edits in my novel made the story so much more cohesive and was able to greatly improve my manuscript before getting it published. My story definitely was much easier to read with the changes she made. If you are lucky enough to work with Aanchal, you’ll be in excellent hands and will be able to take a huge weight of your shoulders with her trustworthy and reliable edits. An up and coming editor destined for the best authors out there!
I’m very pleased! I think, between the two of us, we caught everything and I found Aanchal’s developmental comments very helpful. I’ll definitely use her services again.
J. Paul Hickey (aka Jim Hickey) – Author of The General & The Lady: A True Story of Civil Love and War and the upcoming mystery novel The Blood Island Brooch
Aanchal Jain can be counted as being among the elite of book editors. Her work on my mystery novel, The Blood Island Brooch, made it better and more robust. Aanchal not only corrected grammatical and punctuation issues, she has a keen eye for plot development and made important suggestions for improving the story-line. Aanchal was a delightful literary partner – fast, efficient and thoughtful.
Emmaline Morris – Author of the Chaney Saga (To be published)
Aanchal is great! She goes above and beyond what’s required when editing. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting an editor who treats the story like it’s their own!
Christy L. Erasmus – Author of the Tristan series
It is my pleasure to recommend Aanchal to you for your next project. She’ll offer clever guidance specific to your work, and polish your manuscript to your vision. After her sharp eye has been through, you’ll reach the end of your manuscript filled with enough confidence to release it to the world.
Not only did Aanchal’s suggestions compliment my style and voice, but they also enhanced both. It was clear to me that she took the time to consider my story and what would work best for my world. It was abundantly present such that I could envision her sitting there, drumming up which words would be right for my pal Tristan (my main character) and the next pot of trouble he’d stirred.
She was kind. Aanchal’s edits were pleasant and welcome because of her courteous dialogue. This alone would be enough to hire her. It’s a hard quality to find in an editor.
Kind feedback doesn’t mean a lack of contrary and critical feedback. There were plenty of times Aanchal had to tell me what didn’t work, or what was unclear, for my manuscript’s benefit. Imagine if the book had gotten to my readers like it was? No. Yikes! I’m glad she wasn’t afraid to be honest. My readers will thank her for giving me such wise counsel. She even commented on the stuff she enjoyed, which was fun, especially since my work is not her typical read.
And holy smokes, she’s fast. When she told me I’d have my manuscript returned within two weeks, I’ll be honest, I didn’t believe her. But there it was in my inbox on the final date that we’d agreed upon and I got top-quality editing in record time. That’s impressive. Score! I’m still reeling, to be honest.
Aanchal is an amazing editor! Very professional and careful with details, definitely an excellent option for indie authors to polish the book before publishing. My manuscript was particularly difficult because it was a translation work from Spanish. However, Aanchal worked quickly and in a targeted oriented manner.
Sam Winter – Author of Calamity (To be published)
I highly recommend the editing services of Read Write Relate. Aanchal assisted me with a Line Edit of my post-apocalyptic novel. She was timely in her responses, professional, and thorough in her edits. The entire experience was positive and I look forward to working with her again.
Your notes, ideas and suggestions were spot on! You took my words and my voice and you polished them into a coherent story. The thoughtfulness and care that you so obviously took with your edit is appreciated more than I’m probably articulating in this note, but please know, I felt it. Thank you once again for helping me make The Crow Flies Free something I can be proud of.
Michael Ballack – Author of Shadows in Silion
Thanks a lot for your efforts and brilliant proofreading.
Nestor Pura – Author of his Memoir
Aanchal Jain is a great editor to work with! I don’t currently have a lot of time to put into my craft but she has been very patient in responding to me and working on my time… often waiting through large periods when I am focused on other things.
Before I chose to work with her, I sent my writing to several other editors. Her free sample had the best and most thoughtful edits. After submitting a much larger manuscript to her, I am vey pleased with her work. I plan on keeping the vast majority of her edits and utilizing her suggestions. I have edited my own work numerous time, and have had several others look over it as well. But Aanchal can consistently find ways to make the writing smoother, more active, and more concise.
Aanchal is also happy to talk through any of her edits and to offer suggestions for how to make my writing better. She responds quickly to inquiries. I definitely plan on working with her again, and highly recommend her to other writers!
Tanisha Khaitan – Author
For me the best part of working with Aanchal was that in addition to her eye for detail she took a genuine interest in the development of my story and the characters. My discussions with Aanchal made me more aware of the kind of experience I wanted to provide to my readers. Discussing my ideas with her felt as easy as discussing them with a friend and she made the process of finalizing the first cut of my draft very smooth for me.
