I contacted Bluepencilagency because I was unable to find an agent willing to represent me. David Simons was assigned as my editor and his report, completed promptly on time as promised, showed me why my story hasn’t received agent interest. I now understand which characters to develop and which scenes need expanding. From the annotations on the manuscript, I also know when to reign myself in and classically ‘show not tell’! However, where Bluepencilagency helped the most, was in returning to me a sense of inspiration and enabling me to reconnect with my characters and story. I am now rewriting with renewed vigour.
