Manuscript Critique

High-level review of your final manuscript

Cost depends on word count and quality. See below.

What is included in a manuscript critique?

So, you've finished the first draft of your manuscript, but haven't a clue if it's any good. Your friends and family have probably all given their encouraging two-cents, but to really know if your book will reach your intended reader, you'll need to get an expert's opinion. 

That's where I come in!

Through your manuscript critique (or editorial assessment) I will review your first draft and offer high-level feedback on what's working, what's not, and what you can do about it.

 

You'll received an extensive report - covering everything from structure to style, tone to title - which will detail everything that you can do to improve the manuscript. You can then take that advice back to the drawing board and shape your second draft based on it. 

Et voila, with expert advice taken on board, your work will be ready to send out to agents and publishers. Or, if you're taking the self-publishing route, I can put you in touch with a copy editor for the next step in the process.
