"By pure chance I was fortunate enough to enjoy the excellent editing and story assessing services of Melissa Guyan.  She was incredible throughout the complete process. During the story and plot structure assessment she challenged my thinking and helped improve my story beyond expectation. Her life-long career as an awarding winning author with over 86 novels under her belt, makes her outstanding at seeing where plot, character and story-line can be improved. Similarly, her editing skills were incredible and again, she made suggestions and pushed me to deliver the best I could. She has a passion for writing and can see the manuscript from a reader’s PoV. Her attention to detail and pointing our inconsistencies is legendary.  I will definitely be using her talent, experience and world class skills for my next masterpiece! It was a privilege working with Melissa and with the added bonus of learning so much to improve my overall writing skills."
