Rachel Christley


Rachel Christley, Queen of Fiction Finesse at The Author Buddy, has been in the book world for nine years and is the original beta reader behind The Beta Buddy, which has now grown into an entire team of trained beta readers that help authors polish their manuscripts. You may know her from her work as the head book lover at Steamy Lounge, Steamy Book Bargains, and Boxed Romance Bargains.


Perrin Brunson, Grand Duchess of Design for The Author Buddy (official title pending), is excited to bring her 16+ years of graphic design skills from the corporate and small business world over to the realm of imagination and fantasy…a land in which she is much more comfortable anyway.
