Client Raves

"I wanted you to be among the first to know that I am about to sign a 2-book contract with Thomas Nelson! I truly believe that God used you and your wisdom during the proposal process to make this happen. Several elements of the proposal that allowed them to catch the vision were things that you helped to shape. I'm so blessed by you and no words seem quite right when it comes to how grateful I am that our paths crossed."
Nicole Zasowski, Therapist and Author
"From the first random email I sent Margot to the final receipt of her proposal review, I've loved working with Margot. She's quick, funny, real, and honest in a way that doesn't hurt your heart. And as writers, we need all the kind critiques we can get!

Margot turned my proposal around quickly and gave me invaluable feedback. I can't believe I didn't know about her with my first proposal bomb. I adhered to her tips before sending my proposal for review and it gave new, solid perspective I'd previously been missing.
