“I want to thank Briana for all her help in getting my first  book self-published.This has been a lifelong goal for me, and I could never have completed it without her. She assisted me with thoughtful analysis and helped me develop a smooth continuity for my story line. I will definitely use her for my future endeavors.”

Mary Colacci-Guyer, Author, The Ghosts and the Elusive Treasures

“I have been feeling stuck with my novel for a while. It was written, yes, but my question was: what’s next? I tried to identify what needs to be done and find direction, but instead I was getting more and more frustrated and anxious. This is when I decided to seek professional help. I booked manuscript review service with Briana hoping to get a bit more of a general overview and a sense of direction. I got more than that: Briana pointed out my novel’s strong points and things that I could improve, but most importantly she was so warm and encouraging. Briana’s feedback was delivered on time and it gave me a fantastic basis for my edits. Thanks to Briana, I gained the clarity, I feel encouraged to keep going and I actually can’t wait to start working on my book again!”

Ania Whiteley, Writer

“As a new(ish) indie author, I’ve been struggling with marketing my first novel, which has slowed my enthusiasm for writing as a whole. Briana’s marketing coaching gave me some ideas to focus on in a supportive and encouraging way. She listened to my concerns and came prepared to our session with tips and personal experiences. I’m looking forward to implementing more of her suggestions and checking in with a follow-up session in the future.”

Valerie Rutherford, Author, Magic Inc.

“I have been writing for many years, but the past couple had me blocked. Between hard life turns and physical and mental health issues, my confidence as an author had cratered. Therapy had helped in many ways, but my writing remained stuck and actually caused me major anxiety. Then, I had a coaching session with Briana. I honestly didn’t hold much hope for it because I felt so far gone. But Briana helped me break down the issues I was having and gave me concrete, actionable steps to help overcome them. I’m finally seeing a way out and it’s all thanks to Briana. I can’t recommend her coaching services highly enough!”

Jennifer Acres, Author, On the Way to Simple

“As someone who’s been writing for ten years but has never made the steps to become a published author, I had a TON of uncertainty about the publishing process, especially concerning goal-setting and deadlines. Briana not only made recommendations for what goals to set and where to place them on my publishing timeline but also helped me see that I already knew some of the answers to my own questions. If you’re experiencing uncertainty with publishing and where to go next, book Briana. She’s experienced, knowledgeable, insightful, and best of all, a delightful person to talk to. You won’t regret it!”

Kate Argus, Writer

“Briana is the first freelance editor I’ve ever hired, and her feedback was everything I could have wanted and more. Her questions and comments helped me to think more deeply about my plot and characters than I had before, while being respectful and encouraging of my personal voice. Her feedback was organized, sensitive, and just what my story needed. I’m very grateful for her support and would gladly work with her again.”

Carly Racklin, Writer

“Briana’s editing service has been invaluable in my writing. She provides insightful, thoughtful analysis and critiques of works, from early-stage developmental editing to copy edits and final tidy-ups. I’ve shared many works with Briana for review and it’s clear that she takes the time to read and reflect on the story, understanding the emotive purpose and message in each. She’s also fast, fun, and great to work with.”

Sarina Langer, Author, Relics of Ar’Zac

“I backed myself into a corner with my first self-published book. I felt I overpromised my Kickstarter backers with a timeline I didn’t think I was going to be able to meet. I contacted Briana for her editing services as a desperate effort to find someone who would be willing to edit my book in a crunch. Not only did she agree to edit the book on short notice, she finished editing even sooner than I could have hoped. She was pleasant to work with, her suggestions helped more than I could have imagined, and I plan on going back to her for her services with all my releases.”
