"The Best Course for Editing Your Novel." 

(The BookFox.)

'The Editing Course is a safe homecoming for writers who've been sailing the choppy seas of the first draft. It's both pragmatic and inspiring - from how to lay out a manuscript for submission, to interrogating structure, dialogue, characters, sentences, words, hook...I know that, once I've completed it, my manuscript will be as professionally executed as it can be. And here's a weird thing - I shall be using the Editing Course when I construct my next novel. It's the only 'reversible' course I've ever encountered! '

Susan Nott-Bower. 

The Novelry successfully pitched Susan's manuscript to literary agency Peters Fraser & Dunlop and they now represent her as an author.
