manuscript critique services

So you’ve got some words - a lot of words - on paper and you’d like a professional critique?

A full or partial Manuscript Critique might be just right for you. This is much more than a read-through, but an in-depth analysis of your work. I will read your full or partial manuscript and compile a minimum of 6 pages of feedback on structure, narrative, style, development, theme, voice, word usage, and all things that make for an engaging and well-written good book.

In addition to editorial feedback, I will offer you suggestions and recommendations that will strengthen your writing, bring out your talent in your work, and give you an idea of what comes next to move your book forward and into the hands of readers.

My previous work includes the genres of: fiction, non-fiction, memoir, self-help, and illustrated guidebooks. If you know that you’re ready to share your words, please find my rates below and fill out the form that will start the process. Once I receive your work, you’ll have your Manuscript Critique back in your hands (your inbox!) in no later than three weeks time. And don’t worry if you are working with something “unfinished” or are getting “stuck” on something in your writing - that is what critiques can help you navigate!
