“I’m proof this course works, but don’t take my word for it.”
She writes about her Book Bound experience in one of her interviews.
Tracey Mathias’s timely Brexit-inspired YA thrilled was snapped up by Scholastic and Tracey has this to say about Book Bound:
Rowena House’s debut historical novel Goose Road is being published by Walker Books in April 2018.
Rowena says, “Proof that the editorial foundations Book Bound give you really work came for me when Walker bought the second full draft of The Goose Road, following my own development edit. Since then, it’s only needed line & copy edits.”
- Zoe Cookson has enjoyed newspaper coverage and rave reviews for her self-published picture book, Odd Job Frog.
