What can you expect from Jennifer and your appointment?

How do I prepare for my Editor Appointment?
Bring 5 to 7 pages from your manuscript that are double-spaced with a one-inch margin. Let Jennifer know who your intended audience is and if you plan to self-publish or seek an agent/publisher. If you have a section that is particularly troublesome, bring it and Jennifer can make suggestions on how to “fix” it.
