Feedback From Last Month

“John [Cusick] started out by asking if I had any questions to answer before we dived into his notes. He provided feedback about my novel’s general concept, the writing itself, spoke about best next steps, and we delved into an example within the set of pages I submitted, which proved beneficial. I highly enjoyed my experience and would definitely recommend to other writers. I found it helpful to receive advice/guidance from someone in the industry who knows what they are talking about.”

–Denton

“My consultation with Kimberely Atkins was FABULOUS!

She asked insightful questions, gave excellent advice on my query, and I felt like I was chatting with a new friend who genuinely wanted me to succeed and wanted to help me as much as possible.

Thank you!”

–Jennifer

“Stephanie [Stein] gave me so many solid insights into how to make my query solid. She commented on things I’d never even considered and offered guidance on how to move forward with the changes.

She offered clear explanations for why certain things weren’t working and also offered plenty of praise for things that were.

Stephanie is very engaging, and I felt fully at ease talking to her. I highly recommend booking her for a consultation.”

–Audra

“Great 10 minutes with Rebecca Raskin! She was personable, professional, encouraging, and gave me valuable insights on platform-building, comp titles and networking opportunities, and advice on balancing personal story with prescriptive/informational elements to maintain an emotional connection with readers for a non-fiction project. One of the best 10 minutes I’ve spent in professional development as a writer. The Manuscript Academy and their faculty are great resources!”

“My two ten minute periods with Melissa Warten were very well spent. She pointed out things I hadn’t thought about that really showed insight. I just signed up for another consult with her next week!” –Karen Carson

My ten-minute consultation with Danielle [Chiotti] was FANTASTIC. The suggestions she made, which I’ve been working to implement since our meeting, have strengthened my query letter so much. There were some things she suggested that I hadn’t thought about previously, and these adjustments are making a huge difference in my pitch. I am so glad I chose her for the consultation! Thank you for teaming up with such awesome industry professionals and for having these services available!” –Kay Em Ellis
