Testimonials from happy clients:
“A manuscript critique from Beth is extremely valuable. She can see right to the heart of your story, giving constructive comments and clear advice on how to move forward – you’ll see your work in a new light. I’ve recommended her to friends who were similarly impressed with her thorough reading of their work and her excellent story insights.” Elizabeth Ross, author of the YA novel Belle Epoque, Delacorte 2013, nominated for ALA’s prestigious Morris award for debut writers.
“Working with Beth Ann Bauman is a gift. She is intuitive, insightful, intelligent, and her rare combination of expertise and encouragement makes her the right person to share your story with in its critical stages.” Merryn Johns, Editor-in-Chief of Curve magazine and author of Bright Spark, a novel-in-progress.
“I trust Beth’s editorial judgment implicitly. Her mastery of three-act structure and thorough understanding of character, plot, setting and style have helped me take my writing to places I otherwise never would have reached. Her editorial judgment is second to none.” Jon Swan, author of a YA novel-in-progress
