I absolutely love this company and especially my coach. She is so enthusiastic and insightful. I really feel like I have a champion in my corner. Plus it keeps me committed to my weekly writing goals to have to prepare every two weeks when we meet. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Hewes House has re-invented the way I approach my writing. I've been trying finish a fiction novel for years. Now, because of Hewes House, I'm convinced that I'll get my book published that it will exceed all my previous expectations.

Henry Adams famously said that a teacher can never tell where his influence stops, and surely that is also true for an editor. My own developmental editor has repeatedly astonished me by expanding my capabilities as a writer, and each of the manuscripts I have been able to compose have benefited enormously from his influence and hard work on the first two. The beta-reader at Hewes House made multiple actionable suggestions about one of my other manuscripts, and I was astonished at how spot-on her suggestions had been. They’ve both brought me a pride in the ways I know that I’ve improved as a writer as a result of their help.
