This was a very informative class. I learned a lot. Sandy will give you personalized critiques. I recommend this instructor.
Love, love, love this class! Highly recommend and worth every penny. The content was appropriate; I appreciate how the instructor broke each aspect of the class down and made is accessible. She provided examples which I think are fantastic, it really helps the learner to put into practice the tips. Sandy was very involved in providing quality feedback and asking great questions that spurred me to think deeper about the WIP. Overall, I look forward to taking more classes with Savvy Authors and especially Sandy Vaile!
This was a great class! Thouroughly enjoyed it and the feedback received was so helpful. I'm marking it down because I felt it was rushed. There was just no time to read all my classmates work and comment which was disappointing. But overall a great course and would recommend it.
Sandy's classes are excellent. Amazing lectures, practical tips and superb, priceless exercise feedback. I highly recommend this class and instructor.
