Our Reputation

This is what the #1 independent publisher in America has to say about Rutledge Publishing:

“Janice has the drive, knowledge, and commitment to see a project through from beginning to end and to editorially foster a work in such a way as to make it the best it can be.  She is also gifted with the ability to manage relationships and communications in such a way that minimizes any “bumps.” In editorial matters there is no such thing as smooth sailing, but Janice is probably as close as you’ll get.”

—Jeevan Sivasubramaniam, Managing Director, Editorial, Berrett-Koehler Publishers, Inc.

A 20+ year veteran editor recently said this about Rutledge Publishing:

“Wow! Your review was brilliant. You went “beyond the beyond” in your critique. You pinpointed weaknesses in the content that I missed; however, you were as gentle as a dove in your suggestions for improvement. You constantly provided insight to the author of what was best in the book, even if their writing was a little obscured. Your clients are very fortunate people!”

More kudos for Rutledge Publishing

“Janice provided big picture insights that helped me better understand my own work and stylistic observations that made me a more consistent writer. I was thrilled with her input and truly believe that her feedback helped me produce a better book.”

World-acclaimed author Brian Tracy has this to say:

“Janice Rutledge is easily one of the most talented writers and reviewers in America today. She has a wonderful sense for meaning and context. Her ideas and suggestions for improving the second edition of my best-selling book Goals! have contributed immeasurably to making the second edition the best book on the subject in the world today.”

—Brian Tracy, author of GOALS! 2nd edition and many other titles

Founder of the Trauma Stewardship Institute gives glowing testimony

“I have had the privilege of Janice Rutledge reviewing my manuscript … Who would have known receiving a review could be such an incredible experience. Janice’s skill, passion, and commitment to her work came across in each and every comment. She was incredibly thorough and her attention to detail totally put me at ease. Her insight was apparent throughout the entire review and she asked questions and shed light on things that even after a year of being with this manuscript, had me really thinking again.  She struck a perfect balance of going after each and every possible edit while simultaneously exuding praise wherever she saw fit. I felt very honored to receive her review and I can not recommend her highly enough. Her review would be a gift to anyone’s project.”
