The defining moment of my book was the day I met with Jill Cohen. Within minutes I could tell I was dealing with a serious pro. Jill’s clear, focused sense of the market and the publishing world comes across within minutes of meeting with her. She is a straight shooter who can see the potential as well as the pitfalls of an author’s concept and set them on the right path. Without her expertise and guidance I would never have a book. It was her belief that my publisher and I would be happy with the end result if we followed her advice. This belief kept me going and enabled me to finish. It is a wonderful feeling to realize that your editor is 100 percent in your corner at all times.
