      Hi Laura,
      This is really packed with information. Please could you do something like this for chapter books too.

      Hi Arti:

      You’re in luck! Chapter Book Blueprint is in development right now, and we hope to launch it in October.

      Stay tuned!

        Laura, that is fantastic news. You helped me so much with a chapter book critique not too long ago. Your comments made me consider how the characters developed throughout the plot. Have you already taken the new program through beta testers? If not, I would love to part of that group.

          Hi Bernadette:

          Chapter Book Blueprint is still in the developmental stage. But if we decide we need beta testers, we’ll certainly let you know. Thanks!
