Sarah is really great! I think my situation may be different from others as she approached me. She doesn’t normally do that and I don’t normally reply to unsolicited messages, but I did. And I’m extremely glad I did. Sarah went right to work on my book and helped me to see so many things I had been doing wrong. She helped to point out character and story flaws that three other readers missed. To say I’ve learned a little from her is an understatement. Sarah is very positive and upbeat but isn’t afraid to tell you what she thinks. Grant it, she does so from a critique stance and not without reason.
To add on to this, the relationship she forges with her authors is wonderful. This isn’t just with me, I’ve seen it with other people. She’s a kindhearted woman who understood instances where I had a hard time working, due to anxiety or other issues. She took the time to understand more than just my writing. I’d recommend her to first time authors, especially those who are nervous and afraid to approach anyone. It’s been a good partnership for me and I have no doubt others would have a similar positive experience.
