We just received a testimonial about our editorial services / private coaching:
I am a writer now, but I started as a book editor, working in New York book publishing for nearly 20 years. And I can honestly say that Nicole is one of the best editors I have ever worked with. Not only are her comments astute and highly intelligent, but they are presented in a non-judgmental way, yet still with a no-nonsense tone of what’s important. She also has a sense of humor, which always helps! She notes your strengths as well as your weaknesses, which is essential because it allows you to better understand what needs to be done. But, for me, most important of all is that she will focus in on the one or two key obstacles to what is holding your work back from being really, really good. For example, over the years I have had several extremely professional readers read portions of a novel I had been working on. They gave me comments, some of which were very useful. But only Nicole’s comments allowed me to truly see what the real problem was; only she provided the path to my next step. I had been stuck for a long time. Bravo!
I can’t recommend Nicole highly enough for your work. But be prepared to work.

Thank you for the kind words, Andrea!
