Testimonials

“I have known Liss Caldwell for a year. In that time she’s read my second historical novel, Blind Fall, before its contract. She gave me very useful advice regarding what it needed on both on emotional and structural levels. She has also given excellent insights into the publishing industry and on promotion, which I desperately needed, knowing very little about it. She’s pointed out places to promote both my work and myself, and how to brand myself as a new mainstream author. She is professional, kind and honest. Through her I’m learning more daily about the new world of publishing, and seeing my work growing in the best possible way. I would have no hesitation in recommending her, both as an editor and in PR.”

“Liss Caldwell’s writing and editing advice was invaluable whilst I was writing Book 1. Seraphympire ~Guardians of the Gateways, she helped ensure the story made sense and pointed out where the story could be cut down and tightened during the final stages of rewriting. If not for Liss, I’m sure I wouldn’t have stuck it out. On many occasions, I wanted to give up and throw in the towel, but her insight and encouragement saw me through and kept me going, her opinions and thoughts have and will always be, priceless.”

“After discussing what type of assessment I wanted for my manuscript, Liss provided me with detailed feedback that was thorough and professional. She was also happy to discuss her thoughts and suggestions at length. Liss has many contacts in the industry which has proved to be beneficial as it is difficult to get a foot in the door. I found it to be a very valuable experience and her ongoing support has been amazing.”
