“After four years of chipping away at my novel, I finished a draft; yet, my manuscript somersaulted through zany scenarios and cart wheeled through strange situations, never seeming to complete the clean landing of an overarching story. Armed with a desire to improve my novel but lacking confidence in my story’s ability to capture the attention of reading audiences and a publishing house, I emailed Sandra.

At first a tiny bit intimidated by Sandra’s years of experience, I soon discovered my nerves were unnecessary because Sandra is a honest and practical mentor who genuinely wanted to travel through the writing journey with me. Sandra gave me the tools needed to restructure my story while adhering and strengthening my original themes but not losing the zany fun.

Not only did she expedite the completion of my manuscript, but Sandra also equipped me with the elements of a book proposal so I am now prepared for both traditional or independent publishing. Sandra’s help gave me the necessary confidence to keep submitting my manuscript until Vinspire Publishing decided to publish Teal Paisley Tights in November 2018.”
