Feedback from one of our authors:

"Rosie and Maggie delivered exactly what is offered on the website - a critical, objective and honest assessment of my novel.


There's nothing woolly about the feedback - it's clear, precise and focused on where and how improvements can be made. They cover in detail all aspects of the work with a realistic eye on what the market demands and how to deliver it. 


Professional advice from people who know what they are talking about and who care about good writing and writers."
