Blaine was excellent, very patient, and answered all my questions with wonderful explanations and examples. He made sure I understood something when I didn’t get it right away. I like how he waited for me to finish typing and read what I typed, so I felt like he was really paying attention. I feel more confident in the progression of my story, and it’s all thanks to him. Thank you so much!
I asked Blaine at Superior Story to revise an article that my company was submitting to a local publication. He expertly handled our request by helping us deliver our mission statement and available services clearly. He did such an outstanding job the publication editor did not have to change a single thing about our article. His attention to our goals and adherence to the magazine’s guidelines made our article a big success. Using Superior Story gave my small business a professional sound and feel.

Blaine’s critique of my story was very well written. It was straight to the point, emphasizing the good aspects as well as areas that needed improvement. It helped me fix inconsistencies and develop a story of higher quality.
Blaine gave me feedback on the first half of my novel. His feedback was honest and detailed, without coming across negative or belittling. In fact, his critique was so encouraging that I felt excited about finishing the novel and editing based on his suggestions. I couldn’t recommend him enough!
Blaine of Superior Story read the first 20,000 words of my fantasy manuscript. The first chapter had been revised, but the remainder was in a very rough level of prose. We spoke on the phone, discussed where I envisioned the story to go, and talked about how to make the story stronger.
I must say, I was a little taken aback by his recommendations. He liked the story, but he thought I needed to be a little more connected to one main protagonist and do as much of the story telling through her eyes as I could. He went on to say that if I simply tweak this part or that part it would be stronger in the newly sequenced version. I cannot argue with his assessment. I wanted to strengthen the first third of the book and knew I needed fresh eyes. The advice he gave me has been good sound advice directed at my story without giving me a simple copy-edit and saying nothing about craft!
If you want an honest critique on your story and style so your voice shines, and the story captivates your audience, Blaine can help you get there. I highly recommend him and plan to use him again!
Thank you Blaine for all of your hard work and keen insight.
