“Phyllis’s editing has been very helpful to me. I appreciate her honest feedback because it helped me take the manuscript to the next level.” —LaShaunda Hoffman, St. Louis, Missouri

“I was extremely pleased with the results I received from Phyllis Wheeler. As a new writer, I was dying for some professional advice. Phyllis sent me a personal letter giving me advice on everything from plot flaws to structural mistakes to ways of making my book more of a page turner. She offered great advice on how to make the story more appealing. In addition, she left comments, corrections, and suggestions throughout the pages I sent her. I will be forever grateful.” –Shae Hamrick, Arlington, Texas

“Phyllis read and critiqued two of my manuscripts, one contemporary and one historical, plus a one-sheet for the historical. She gave me frank but helpful comments on both. I incorporated her suggestions into the books and deeply appreciate the time and effort she devoted to my projects.”
