    WriteByNight has been so helpful for my process and figuring out the steps I need to take to be successful. I enjoy working with Resa and have found her insight so valuable!

    I have been very happy with my experience at WriteByNight so far. David was very helpful in guiding me to the right reviewer for my manuscript and he helped get my query letter and synopsis in good shape. Alex Myers gave me a great critique of the manuscript with a lot of helpful and concrete suggestions. I really enjoyed talking through his comments on a video call and I’m currently working through what we discussed to improve the book. Ultimately though, the most valuable thing so far was hearing that the book has promise and getting the encouragement to pursue publication. I plan to come back soon to get more help with moving through the publication process. Many thanks to David and Alex for the help so far.

    WriteByNight was great to work with. I am in the querying process and was looking for another set of eyes on the first ten pages of my manuscript. I did a read-through with Michael Bible, and he provided some immensely helpful insight into how I might get some more traction with getting my book in the right hands. I'm still working on it, but I appreciated the thoughtful chat with Michael. He also got me going on one of my new favorite authors (Larry Brown).

    I had a great experience with WriteByNight and hope to continue working with them. David was very generous with his time on the front end, and worked with me to figure out what I needed. Then JoAnna did a read of my draft that was both affirming and encouraging. I came away with an actionable critique. Highly recommend.

    I finally made the decision to invest in myself (rather than buy more goats, alpacas, or horses) and it was the best move! Writing a synopsis and query were like these two huge walls I couldn't (and didn't want to) scale. From first contact with David Duhr, I have been so pleased with the assistance I received. Alex Myers read my novel and very quickly provided drafts of both the synopsis & query. I also had a Zoom meeting with John Sibley Williams and he made me feel comfortable right away - and also recommended additional edits. I had already accumulated an extensive agent list, but David provided a few more. I've submitted to 45 agents so far, and am gradually getting responses. One agent requested the full manuscript within hours of submitting a query, and while it turned out to be a pass, it's very encouraging to get personal feedback, rather than a form letter. So far all nos, but about half have sent personal notes that are much appreciated -and I know those responses are due to the work done by the WBN staff. Still waiting to hear back from about 3/4 of the agents I submitted to and I will never give up! Thank you so much!
