AJ  went above and beyond!

Her beta reader service was valuable in helping me understand the plot holes in my manuscript and what elements could be scrapped or fixed to make it more enjoyable. AJ’s in-depth editing and advice was also vital in bringing my manuscript up to a publishable standard. My novel, A Plan Unravelled, will be out in July and I can’t thank her enough for helping me to achieve this.

S.C.’s feedback:

For a writer’s debut novel, the process can be quite harrowing. In my case, I handed my first manuscript of historical fiction to Annie with fear and trepidation, not sure what to expect. She performed the line edit with care and consideration for the story. Her eye for detail was outstanding and her focus on showing me how and where improvements could be made was invaluable. I learnt such a lot from her and the experience was fantastic.
