What Writers Are Saying About The Path to Published

Chrissy Scivicque

Thanks to Kathy I have interest from 3 high profile agents. One even commented specifically on my comprehensive, professional proposal and wanted to know who had helped me with it! I told her my secret weapon was Kathy Ver Eecke.

Chrissy Scivicque, Eat Your Career
Rev. Dawn Smith Camacho

I’m so impressed with your detail and expertise. You made this process incredibly enjoyable and useful for me– I really don’t know how to thank you enough for your clarity, and wealth of wonderful feedback.

Rev. Dawn Smith Camacho, Seventh Sense
Matthew Harffy

I landed a kick-** agent. Kathy helped me to see how I could improve the hook in my  query letter. She also suggested making changes to make certain sections more prominent. All of this made my letter more focused and attractive to agents. She has a way of cutting through to the heart of problems and her advice always makes good sense and is backed up with a wealth of info. All that and she is great fun to talk to as well!

Matthew Harffy, Writer
