“Fabulous and very giving.”

“Completely awesome seminar! Definitely the most useful so far.”

“Very hands on, includes the entire group. Gives  everyone a very clear idea of how to condense one’s logline to only include what they need.”

“Brilliant, creative, swift, efficient and extremely insightful.”

“Lane’s presentation changed my entire approach to querying. This is the most valuable, concrete thing I have learned at a conference. She helped us transform each & every logline we saw into something concise and compelling. This is one of the most important things for debut authors trying to market their work.”

“Lane’s workshop has been so helpful. In fact, it’s been the most helpful workshop thus far. Please, please, please bring her back! She’s amazing.”

“Bring Lane back! Her workshop was so helpful.”

“Awesome! Brilliant! Well worth the admission price alone.”

“Lane’s presentation was fantastic! So great to see the before and after of loglines.”

“Lane’s workshop was practical and entertaining and we would have stayed even longer to revise additional loglines. She helped me improve mine.”

“This was extremely helpful in understanding how to pare down the essential and not to hide the hook.”

“I have a direction! Thank you!”
