Un-Settling Books offers book coaching and editing services for beginning to experienced writers. We are creative coaches, longtime editors, and nitpicky proofreaders, working in collaboration with you to help you bring out the story you are meant to tell.

We believe in the power of story and the magic of your narrative. We are here to celebrate and empower your voice, your message, and your book. In a world where so many of us were trained to settle for something less, it’s exhilarating to recognize that settling is a choice. And it’s thrilling to decide to reject it.

Our writers are all done settling. If you are, too, we want to hear from you. Let’s talk.

Maggie McReynolds

Founding Editor

An award-winning author, editor, speaker, and writing coach, Maggie founded Un-Settling Books in 2018 after various incarnations as an ad agency creative director, comedy writer, restaurant critic, columnist, and magazine managing editor. Maggie has shepherded non-fiction, personal development, novels, and memoirs from idea to publication, and believes in harnessing the power of story to create and shape our lives. 

Maggie lives in Burlington, Vermont, with an inordinate number of lamps and a small dog who objects to winter.
