“Such insightful and powerful feedback.”

I now have a clear sense of the road ahead. It’s plain that my editor is not only an expert in her field, but she’s heartfelt and authentic, and she truly understood my manuscript. The written report is accessible, in-depth and instructive. It’s clarified the intangible, and I know now what will make the novel more robust moving forward. 

The entire experience has been energising. I feel hopeful and laser-focussed on the next few months ahead of me.

Brooke Hardwick.
