“As an aspiring picture book writer, I realized that I had a lot to learn about the world of children’s book publishing. But what I didn’t realize was just how much. Of course I knew that I needed a great story…with interesting characters…a plot that keeps moving…etc., but there is so much more involved.
My critique from F1rst Pages not only helped to make my story stronger, but it also guided me through the submission process. In order to stand out in a very competitive market, it is crucial to look professional. Eileen’s advice ranged from the very simple, but necessary, suggestion of choosing a different font…to more complex advice, such as knowing my audience and suggestions for making my story more age-appropriate.
Eileen’s critiques are tough, but honest, and she manages to inspire rather than discourage. I really enjoyed my experience with F1rst Pages, and I highly recommend her service.”
