I'd love to hear more about your project as a first step towards our deciding if we would work well together.

Although I typically work with authors who have finished a draft of their manuscript, I can often help solve problems that are stalling your progress.

Here's what I need to know about your project.

I hired Jennifer Lawler to critique my novel manuscript and it's the best money I've ever spent for writing help. I’ve gotten feedback from friends and family but I needed someone who knew the world of authorship/editing inside out. If you need someone to help improve your novel, Jennifer is the one.

Your guidance in helping me reshape my query letter really paid off. I signed this week with an agent. I didn't get a single bite from my original query letter, but with the revised letter based on your critique I got two full-read offers in the same week.

I've known Jennifer for many years, but last year I was fortunate (and wise) enough to become her client when I hired her as a developmental editor for my novel. I am in awe of the way Jennifer could see through potential issues and then present me with a fully thought-out map of what I could do to polish my manuscript and make it better and more salable. I can't heap enough genuine praise on her. Jennifer Lawler is the real deal.
