Hello and welcome.

Here at Word Witchery I offer a manuscript assessment service for writers seeking feedback and guidance on their road to publication whether that be through traditional, digital or Indie pathways.  I believe every manuscript can shine and that I have a unique insight into what makes a story that sells.

As a professional author with over 70 titles, 3 millions sales and fifteen years industry experience, I am in a position to offer current, relevant, industry-specific assessment tailored to your particular work.

Word Witchery specialises in romance and I am well versed and passionate about all forms of romantic fiction - single title, novella, contemporary, historical, regency, fantasy, sci-fi, women's fiction, romantic elements, young adult, new adult, erotica, steampunk, chick lit.  Similarly, I have a working knowledge of other genres and am open to manuscripts from any genre.

My aim is to assist you in making your work sparkle and taking your finished manuscript to the next level.

I chose Amy to assess my manuscript due to her expertise in the genre I write in. I am so glad I did. Her feedback was thorough (a written report as well as mark up on the digital manuscript) and on point; the reasoning behind her suggestions for change was perceptive and just plain sensible. I'd had two previous assessment on the same manuscript and spent a while emotionally recovering from each critique. Amy delivers hers in a way that is positive and constructive - she even suggests how improvements might be made. And she made me feel that my writing has worth. I have found her service to be invaluable and I will be employing her again.

As a complete novice, I was unsure how to proceed with my first finished manuscript - I knew it needed (a lot of!) work, and I am beyond grateful for the assistance Amy has given me with it. Her knowledge and experience as an author are invaluable, and her practical and insightful assessment has ensured my confidence in moving forward with editing. Amy's direction and encouragement were just what I needed to continue on this writing journey. Plus, she was much quicker with turnaround than I expected!
