Hey! I’m Parul Macdonald. Welcome to my small slice of the internet. I'm here because I often get these questions.

How do I find an editor? Do I even need one?

Should I self-publish?

How do I find an agent?

If you have the same questions, you're in the right place!

I work with authors @Cornerstones and take on a handful of private clients to help them strengthen their stories, find agents and navigate the publishing world.

Testimonials

 I had the great good fortune of working with Parul on my first novel with Random House. She proved to be both professional and enthusiastic in every regard, exactly what a first time author needs!

 - Michael Williams, author of Now is the Time for Runningand Director of Cape Town Opera 

Parul was wonderful. She could see what I was trying to achieve with my manuscript and immediately put me on the right path. She pointed to areas where I needed to increase tension and tighten plot, and how to solve inconsistencies in my character's voice. Her feedback was really insightful and she was incredibly helpful and generous with her time. Having such invaluable support has given me the confidence to tackle my next draft.

 - Zerlina Mastin, author of Nutrition for the Dancer, and writing her first fiction book.

Working with Parul on ideas for my second book was invaluable for me. She's a pro and I can't wait to work with her again. 

- Michael Serwa, Coach for the Elite, author of From Good to Amazing
