"Mia offered me some amazing feedback on my manuscript. Her thorough analysis and gentle criticism highlighted both the large and small problem areas in my book, and she gave me some excellent guidance on how to fix these. Brainstorming with Mia actually made me excited to start on revisions! In addition, she helped me to become more cognizant of my overarching weaknesses, and her insights will go a long way toward strengthening my work in the future. If you are an author or aspiring author interested in improving your craft, Mia will not only challenge you to write the best book you can, but she will provide you with the tools and encouragement to do so."
"It would be easy for me to say that Mia as a writer, and an editor, has an intuitive sense of story. That she’s candid, and thorough, and patient, and that both my manuscript, and I, are so much better for having had her input. I can say all these things because they are true. But what these facts don’t cover is the kindness and generosity that she offers so abundantly. I am very lucky to have her not just a mentor, but also as a friend. She is a joy to work with."
"I had the honor of being Mia's mentee in 2018. Her feedback was invaluable for my revision process, be it little line edits or big developmental notes. She was always supportive and kind when talking over issues or ideas and really helped me keep my confidence as a writer. She also has really knowledgeable experience within the publishing industry that can help any writer on their journey, no matter where they are. I definitely recommend her services and skills to anyone wanting a stronger and better story!"
"I had the pleasure of engaging Mia Manansala as a book coach. She reviewed the first three chapters of my manuscript. In addition to written comments, she conducted a video appointment to discuss my concerns. I found her recommendations specific to my work in progress, and helpful toward improving my craft. I strongly encourage other aspiring authors to utilize her services."
"Mia complimented my MS strengths and provided insights and suggestions on how to improve my main character and the setting. She answered all my questions thoroughly and in a very professional manner."
