I’d spent more than a year in the query trenches, with no luck.  After CJ critiqued the first 25 pages of my manuscript, I made changes based upon her recommendations – and my first book was accepted for publication less than a year later.  For my second novel, her suggestion added depth and a whole new dimension to the story.  That book is scheduled for release at the end of this year.  Do I really need to say how highly I value her manuscript critiques?

CJ’s critique of my first 10 pages was so enlightening, it gave me insight on the manuscript as a whole. I gained clarity and confidence, as her feedback was both helpful and encouraging.
