As a new author without agent representation, it was critical to have someone with book publishing expertise on my team to help navigate my way to successful negotiations with a publisher.
Francesca’s detailed review of my contract coupled with her industry insight provided me with the knowledge I needed to make an informed decision. She was attentive, thorough, accessible and easy to work with. As a result of her feedback, I was able to evaluate whether the publisher was a good fit for me as well as successfully negotiate a publishing contract.
