Get ready to join the dance. Getting your writing into the hands of a publisher is hard enough and if you choose to publish on your own writing – good luck! It is a tough market.

We offer a one-of-a-kind solution with virtual book clubs. Your manuscript is read by a professional reader while your work takes the readers’ litmus test. Readers from around the world have an opportunity to provide feedback on your writing before publishing. It is a great way to tell if you are truly touching your market.
