I was wondering if someone had any experience writing for this firm.

It seemed to me that their product design was somewhat weak, or perhaps specifically targetted to a particular taste.

it also seemed to me that 10,000 words was short for a 'book' for young adults. It made me question the age of the reader and the purpose of the writing.

I would like to hear impressions of this ad.

Today is my first visit to the forum. Pleased to be here and nice to meet you. And thank you. This looks like a nice place.

Much love,

Dev
