Congratulations to Laurence Cooper
on the publication of his comedy-romp-political-satire George Valentine’s Retirement Plan. It was a great pleasure to work on editing this novel and it deserves huge success.

Set in modern-day England and with themes of music, politics, PR and criminal activities by a lovable pair of old rogues as well as Russian oligarchs and Bulgarian assassins, this will have you smiling at every page and desperate for more.

Congratulations to Austin Hernon who has published his historical odyssey The Wayward Prince as an ebook through Matador.

He never became king of England – but he did lead a fascinating life; on the battlefield, in political shenanigans throughout continental Europe, England and Scotland, and with a number of feisty ladies between the sheets.

I wish Fiction Feedback had been around when I wrote my first novel. It's a great idea for writers - a review service from people who really care about fiction.

“The quality and depth of the reviews far exceeded my expectations and it was clear that the reviewers had taken the trouble to get to grips with my writing and do a thorough job. I think the service you have provided is excellent value for money.”

“It is incredibly useful to have this kind of detailed response to a piece of writing. I could not have come to these insights on my own and I now have a good understanding of my common mistakes which is very helpful for the future.”
