Heidi’s critique was incredibly insightful and lit a fire within me. Her feedback inspired me to dig into my manuscript and make revisions. Afterward I felt more prepared to submit my work with confidence. Her insightful critique is 100% worth the money, and my favorite part of working with her was developing a friendship with a fellow book lover who cares about my work.

I recommend working with Heidi as she only wants to see you succeed. She takes the time to give detailed feedback that’s critical yet positive. The manuscript critique helped me both trim and expand my story. I wish I could hire her full-time.
