A big thank you to Sophie and her team for helping me pull the final strands of my first novel together. [They] offered me an honest, impartial appraisal and constructive solutions for resolving my outstanding concerns. They rallied me to keep going, encouraged me not to overbend to the views of others (including their own), but to have the confidence to stay true to my own voice and my original concept.
