Our latest happy customers...
"It was getting harder and harder for me to stay on top of my 90,000 word manuscript so I approached Amy at Word Witchery for an assessment.
I kept thinking, 'I wish someone could do an aerial flyover of my manuscript and tell me what works and what doesn't.'
Amy did that for me, and I received an amazingly objective and comprehensive report encompassing plot, sub-plot, dialogue, character and setting.
I'm now thinking about my story and characters in a new light, and with a fresh view on how to go about making my work the best that it can be. Thanks so much for your help, Amy."
"I just wanted to let you know that I recently signed a contract with Escape Publishing. They are going to publish both the books you helped me with…. coming out first, in March 2016.
I had also entered ….three RWNZ and RWA contests this year and it finalled in all of them, including a first and a second placing.
So thank you very much for your assessments of both manuscripts and your recommendations-they really did help me improve my stories."
