As someone who is new to the world of publishing and editing, I can testify as to how hard it is to admit that your darling’ manuscript needs big changes in order to make it work as well as you’d like. We’ve heard the stories, rejection followed by doubts concerning what it is we’re doing. Do we really want to get published? Maybe we should just focus on something else. Cas has helped me hugely, and with such enthusiasm and positivity that I was compelled to push forward. Just what a new writer needs, Cas is. Her editing skills and insight into what makes a reader tick are the perfect tools to shape a raw manuscript into a thing of beauty, and so a big thank you to her for the kind words, honest advice and valuable criticism without which I would still be staring at a mess. Thank you Cas!
