Is my story good enough?

Introducing Storyline Review Services Most Kwik users are publishing stories for the first time. Their amazing excitement sometimes goes down when a reviewer says "the story is confuse" or "illustrations are gorgeous but story not much". To avoid (real) situations like that, we are offering a new service called Storyline Review. We have partnered with experienced, many times published, author and illustrator, Anna Hines, a long time Kwik user, to provide a detailed critique on how to improve your story, BEFORE starting to create your storybook app (with Kwik or with any other product or vendor). Save your time, money and frustration! Feel free to check Anna's thoughts on this service. I strongly...
