Up front and honest, but always spot-on, Michaelbrent Collings is a master at fine-tuning all elements of novel writing. In literally a short amount of time he found ways to help me pull the story out of my mind.

the Hashbrown Wintersbooks and Guardians of the Hidden Scepter
If I counted on my fingers the best teachers of writing to publish I know, Michaelbrent would make the list even if I lost a few digits. He's of the rare, reasonable breed of working writer who doesn't believe the key to publication is to write the way he does, but to use technique and craft to write well as yourself. Lots of people can tell you how to write like them, and precious little good it will do you. Michaelbrent is one of the few who will legitimately help you learn to write well as yourself.

and professional editor and writing coach
Michaelbrent Collings is a consummate professional, who possesses a great sense of story, and his knack for knowing what works (and what doesn't), has helped my storytelling manyfold.
