“ I am really grateful (and pleased!) with both appraisals and feel I have more than had my money's worth. Both reviewers have taken the time to thoroughly read my novel extract and comment on several areas, not just one or two, that either impressed them or they felt could be tweaked. I'm very, very happy and will definitely be recommending Fiction Feedback to my writer friends” ~ RB
