Upon completion and in order to ensure that her book would prove enlightening and provide some direction for these writers, Ms. Reveal solicited help from authors and editors and teachers at many levels and in many genres, to read her work and provide feedback. “It’s because of these talented readers that the book is a better product,” she said.
