James also reviews manuscripts that are work in progress. “I can’t thank you enough for your very professional work in reviewing my writing. You have provided an in-depth ‘eye’ into my story and your comments have helped me with quite a few aspects I hadn’t fully seen. Of course, I’m completely in agreement with what you’ve noted which has ensured a great trust between us. Thank you so much. I feel Maria and Miss Curtis have been so well treated!” (Natalie Watson, Author)
