The feedback was awesome and just what I was looking for. All the questions I had about my manuscript were answered. I appreciate the compliments along with the critical honesty. I truly, truly appreciate you squeezing me into your schedule!
Beta Read for author V. B. Marlowe
Thank you so much for the very quick response! I'm really impressed, I did not expect it to be this quick or thorough! I've read through Graham's comments. It's such an odd feeling, reading what someone else thinks of a story that came out of your head, but again, I;m really impressed. It's so useful, some things he mentions were not even on my radar (I had no idea that gotten was American - stupid TV!) and his comments will be so useful for my next rewrite.
I'll do another draft/rewrite, and hopefully by then I'll have enough money to get proofreading/editing! I'll definitely be coming to you guys first.
New Author Hannah Fox
Just got back my finished proofreading from fading street. I highly recommend this. Graham found issues my editor missed. He works quick and does more than what I paid for. When book three is ready, Graham will be the first I contact for help. Thanks again Fading street.
