Thank you, ReadersMagnet for reviewing my manuscript! Before, I wasn’t really sure if I should push forward my plans of self-publishing my book because I am not confident with my words. Your editorial services and your honesty made gave me the boost I needed. Now I am excited to take a step... further. I feel inspired. Great job, ReadersMagnet!read more
