I’ve been so fortunate to work with C.J. on multiple projects now, and I’m always amazed by her insight and thoughtfulness. Not only is she a wonderful writer, but she’s a wonderful critique partner who always sees to the heart of the story and aims straight for it.

I’d spent more than a year in the query trenches, with no luck.  After CJ critiqued the first 25 pages of my manuscript, I made changes based upon her recommendations – and my first book was accepted for publication less than a year later.  For my second novel, her suggestion added depth and a whole new dimension to the story.  That book is scheduled for release at the end of this year.  Do I really need to say how highly I value her manuscript critiques?
