‘With the Music’ by Nichola Scurry

I worked with Nichola over a couple of years on her charming debut novel. We started with a manuscript assessment, followed on with a series of one-on-one workshops, and finished with a copy edit.

It was such a pleasure to see her book blossom from a promising first draft to a published book. The cherry on top was Nichola inviting me to speak at her launch.

Nichola self-published ­– this was her plan from the beginning. If you are considering self-publishing and are wondering what it takes, you might be interested in reading this: Journey of a book
