"Using Manuscript Matchmaker is exactly what I needed at this point in my writing life. I am an experienced writer, but I needed more time. Lisa gave that to me. Now, while I continue to write new work, I am regularly sending out my finished manuscript to literary agents and editors she researched for me. Worth every penny!" --G.G.
"I’ll admit it—I’m one of those writers who tends to put off submitting work. It’s not because I’m afraid of rejection (which is inevitable in this business), but because I find the whole process so daunting and tedious. I have a hard time keeping track of all the book publishers, editors, and submission requirements. No matter now organized I try to be, I never feel on top of the task. I stick my toe in every once in a while, feel the cold water, and retreat.
That’s why I was so happy to hear about Lisa’s Manuscript Matchmaker business. A skilled, energetic researcher, Lisa knows the business, having published many books herself and submitting her work on a regular basis. And she understands that making a connection with a literary agent or editor isn’t simply a matter of using the right keywords. That’s just the starting point. Before she gave me her recommendations, she researched each company and found books that were similar or complementary to my manuscripts. I now have an appropriate, research-based angle for each query. And to think I have all this information in one well-organized document! It would have taken me weeks to gather all the information that Lisa provided—if I stayed with the task at all.
An additional benefit to working with Lisa is that her enthusiasm is contagious! She genuinely wants writers to find a home for their work and provides the motivating nudge some of us need. I highly recommend her services." -- N.L.
