Testimonials from the First Graduating Class

“Get Signed is an excellent masterclass! It’s packed with valuable information, insider insights, and actionable tips. Most importantly, it delivered on its promise—I’m proud to say after implementing the advice of the course and Lucinda, I did indeed get signed with an agent and landed a book deal with a major publishing house! I definitely recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how to successfully navigate the publishing process. Lucinda is the best.”
—Dr. Mary Anderson

“Lucinda’s courses are an invaluable resource for authors facing the daunting task of getting their book to market. Get Signed is well-organized, crammed with important information and absolutely worth the fee. Lucinda Halpern is highly experienced, giving and perceptive — in short, she’s the real deal!”
—Peter Melnick

“Lucinda combines a positive attitude with constructive criticism to give authors inspiration and specific guidance. Her experience and advice is relevant for both new authors and those already published. My query letter improved immensely through this course to shine at its best. I have renewed hope.”
—Heather Buchanan

“For writers who are not New York adjacent, the opportunity to meet and learn from an established literary agent is invaluable.”
—Participating writer

“Lucinda is especially adept at navigating a group of very different people (who are at different points in the process), making sure everyone gets heard and learns a lot, and ensuring that all participants get connected and learn something from each other as well. The program is interesting, illuminating, and makes what can be an overwhelming process navigable, and fun!”
—Leanne Shear

“Being part of Lucinda’s class removed all of the isolation and mystery around the publishing process I’d felt working on my manuscript. I now know what it takes to break through, and feel so happy and confident in the publishing path I’ve chosen. Thank you, Lucinda, for offering this needed and valuable course!”
—Participating writer

“Get Signed was everything I hoped it would be. Having already written a book, I was trying to understand the ins and outs of the publishing world and get some guidance regarding my next steps. Not only did Lucinda’s warm and inviting energy quickly create a sense of community among everyone participating, but Lucinda gave me all the clarity I needed. She answered any questions I could dream up, grounded me, inspired me, and set me straight on my road to getting signed.”

—Troy Hadeed
