“Sharon’s review of my book was so helpful and thorough! She was very professional and gave me weekly updates while she read and compiled her feedback. She pointed out a lot of things that helped me make sense of other beta readers’ feedback, as well as a number of things I hadn’t considered yet.

I’m going into my revisions really well-prepared now, and I’d recommend Sharon to anyone as a book coach.”

–Anna Read

“Working with Sharon was a pleasure in every way. Her feedback on my novel was invaluable: Insightful and detailed. Her inline comments, summary comments, and in-person comments were worth every penny. Plus, she is very tactful.”

-Bob Hodgman, Author of Winter’s Turn and The Dark
