Special New Service Coming!

Something really special is coming to our traditional manuscript critique service. We can’t say what it is until we’ve got it set up – but you are going to love it! We promise. Only registrants will get the chance to buy a consultation with an agent or editor, or to buy into this special new service, and those who register first will get first shot at buying these limited spaces once they’re set up – so register as soon as you can! It will be strictly first-come, first-served.

And if you haven’t signed up for our mailing list, please sign up here to get all the latest news:
