Having spent most of her adult life writing and editing children's books, Di Bates comes into publishing with a vast amount of valuable knowledge. I'm sure if you put your 'book baby' into Di's capable hands, you will be thrilled with the result.
I really appreciate this detailed, skilled feedback which is so kindly provided and such a bonus for unpublished writers such as myself.
A picture book assessment by Di is spot on. Her attention to detail highlights both editorial and structural faults. The comments give you a better eye when looking at your manuscript. You learn to see your story in a different light. I loved the simplicity of the comments. Some comments made me laugh at something that should be so obvious, yet I didn’t see It. Getting an assessment is very worthwhile. What I liked the most was that the assessment was easy to follow and implement.
WOW! That was fast! Thank you so much for your many clever insights, suggestions, and detailed response.
Your feedback is helping me to appreciate that there's much to think about when penning a text for a picture story book from overall structure, language choice, use of dialogue, relationship between text and illustrations etc. You've given me a lot to think about and for this I am very thankful.
Di Bates - what a legend! This prolific and wonderful writer of children's fiction and advice books for writers, is also a warm, positive, and professional mentor for numerous writers of all levels of experience. She has given me so much invaluable advice; I only wish I'd met her earlier in my career as I would then have progressed much further and faster! I could not give too high a recommendation to Di's services.
Dianne Bates is a master of her craft, and her advice is prolific, honest, and constructive. Above all else, she is a generous professional who genuinely delights in nurturing new talent and giving back to the industry. There are mentors... and if you are lucky, there's Di Bates.
