As a first-time author, I had no idea what to expect from this process. Also writing a non-fiction book for a niche market had me a little concerned about a good fit. Sophie was great. She polished everything up and made some great suggestions regarding moving some content around for more clarity. Everything was delivered on time. Highly recommend!
