As an indie writer that has just started self-publishing, Marian’s editorial skills were invaluable. She was concise, thorough and did it in a very smart way. Her technique of using a 3 part “ledger” to explain why certain things had to be edited was crucial to me as a writer and definitely a learning curve as to what not to do. I never realized how many mistakes I had made until she showed me. Thanks Marian!
