Thank you, Tom, for the extensive feedback you gave on my manuscript. I greatly appreciated your line-by-line edits as well as the more general comments on plot, pacing, structure and other aspects of the story that had passed me by. I liked that you understood the story and did not try to change it, but suggested many ways to improve it. The notes you gave were especially useful. They provided a learning process and gave me a real ‘steer’ in the right direction for future projects.
