  •     If you've ever wondered about the healing power of writing, or if you have a book idea teasing your consciousness, start writing. The words are inside of you. Trust your first draft! You can schedule your launchpad session to answer those niggling questions. Then develop an action plan propelling you forward with whatever goal comes up for you. Not everyone needs to write a book, though everyone can mine personal epiphanies in their words to engage your audience on the page or stage. On the events page, you can sign up for even more events and special offerings.

Services for all your writing needs or I'll find you the resource/person you most need!  (I have over 45 articles for writers on their journey to authordom.)

Word Quest Editing

I have multiple tiers and styles of editing packages and  I tailor them to each author's individual and their unique book needs. I also offer templates for many of the stages of creating your book.

Word Quest Ghost Writing

Do you have stories you can't imagine telling and don't have a clue where to start on the page or screen. Allow me to interview you and hold your hand to walk you through your story, landing it on the page with you.

Word Quest Collaborative Editing

I do more than take your book manuscript (your book baby) away into secret offices with a red pen. I meet with you online and visit each sentence and page together. I call it collaborative immersion editing. Book a free 45 minute session to find out more.

Reasons to choose Rusti L Lehay 
and the Word Quest Team:

Just as editors do more than splash your text with missing commas, writing coaches do more than tell you to write. They are a bit like doulas helping you birth your books and stories. If you have questions, we'll share the answers or find them for you.

Rusti coaches authors to find the words that their hearts speak. Working as an empath, she guides writers to open up to what their story is and the most authentic way for them to share it, helping them place the right words at the right time for all the right reasons. Sometimes a book and sometimes Rusti helps you discover many other ways to best use your story and plant your words to meet your strategic objectives.

Words exist in her blood and bones. She specializes in helping you find, craft and tweak yours!

​Feedback from author:
Ruth Owen 

Rusti L Lehay began her own Quest for Words when she was an itty-bitty thing.

If you've lived and breathed, you have a story.  

If you have a passion combined with curiosity and imagination, you have a novel.

If you've lived and learned, you have knowledge.  

Everyone has gathered a thing or three in their life journey.

It's time to share your story, your knowledge. Someone is waiting for your words, your expertise. Sign up here for our newsletter and/or request "How to write your book.”
