“Thanks for your good editing. I found a great agent, Claire Gerus, and she directed me immediately to Kaplan Publishing and yesterday a signed contract came through with a nice little advance and a commitment to publish my book. Your suggestions and encouragement were invaluable.”—Judge Irene Sullivan, author of Raised by the Courts
A proposal critique provides:
