I can’t wait to make the revisions you suggested and send my (Romance) proposal back to Berkeley.  I really feel like I’m on track to getting published this time!  And I couldn’t have done it without you.

Finally. A writer who knows how to teach without boring the class to tears. Sure, you might be able to get your book published without Adrienne’s help, but why play “The Struggling Writer Game” when you’ve got a first-class professional to teach you the ropes?

I asked Adrienne to critique and line edit my first short erotic romance. Her insights, suggestions and techniques made my story much richer. I’m now applying everything I learned from Adrienne to my (bestselling novels.) I really appreciate her advice and encouragement and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who would like to improve their writing.

Thank you for your critique. It was very useful. You taught me more in this email than I learned in 9 months of the (critique) club I was in.
