Arielle Haughee is a real game changer. As a new novelist, I needed some help with an early draft of my manuscript, to find some of the weak areas and shore them up. After one consultation, Arielle zeroed in on the problems and helped me find a few new ways to solve them. She even helped me with a few follow-up questions, making sure I was on the right track.

I have worked with Arielle on several projects, including short stories and a full-length novel. She is a joy to collaborate with. Her feedback is invaluable. It's clear she is pushing no agenda other than trying to make your work better. Her feedback is well organized and easy to follow. I can honestly say I am a better writer for having worked with her and I look forward to using her services again in the future.

Arielle brings a great grasp of reader immersion. She asks questions about the content and helps you identify loose ends or clarity issues. In her overview of my novel, she was able to flag content I hadn't realized was problematic and could turn away readers. I dive back to her feedback and evaluation often as I continue to polish and prep this novel for agents.
