Iain Maloney has reviewed two of my novels and both have been meticulous and hugely helpful. As a newbie writer, he has guided me and educated me in every aspect of writing a novel. Iain showed me why things work and don’t work, and what the industry expects from a story and its characters. He queried plot decisions, suggested alternatives and picked up on things I just forget. Now I am on the way to considering myself a writer. A big thanks to Iain and the team at Blue Pencil. A tricky career change now makes sense.
