Natasha’s feedback is worth its weight in gold, because you can bet it’s not sugarcoated—no worries, it’s not squishing the life out of your little writer’s heart either (which is good, because otherwise I’d still be recovering). She has a knack for finding what needs improvement and then offers constructive criticism and advice. From speeding up the pace and finding the right starting point, to cutting back some fat and getting to the meat, or getting some activity into the passiveness that were my characters—and did I mention she’s a pitch-wizard? Seriously, from my query and first chapter alone she came up with pitches that made me cry, because they were that good, and I obviously hadn’t thought of them myself. Needless to say I put her on speed dial.
