Our latest happy customers...
After receiving a rejection from a publisher my confidence was low and I wanted to get an unbiased opinion of my manuscript. I had heard wonderful things about Word Witchery so engaged Amy Andrews to do a manuscript assessment for me. Fresh from her Mediterranean travels Amy jumped into my manuscript and within 48 hours I had a response that every author loves to hear - "There is very little I can add to a book that is warm and lovely and utterly engaging as well as exceptionally well written. I would feel guilty taking your money on a one page assessment that will say - good, good, good now submit the thing already."
True to her word, Amy and Word Witchery refunded my money even though she did provide that one page assessment with a few fantastic ideas that I have taken on board and included in my latest edit. I will most definitely be engaging Word Witchery again. Thanks Amy.
Word Witchery/ Amy Andrews provided me with a generous and detailed assessment of my manuscript Alpine Kisses, a finalist in the 2016 RWA Emerald Award. She covered everything from grammar and style to setting and plot but was particularly helpful in her assessment of my characters. Amy's comments helped me tweak little things that gave me more confidence when submitting my story in the competition. Her comments on the hero and heroine and their developing love story also helped me add the extra emotional depth and punch I needed to make my early readers and judges fall in love with Hailey and Matt as much as they fell in love with each other.
