Having your manuscript assessed is a fantastic first step in the publishing process. This service is considered to be BIG PICTURE EDITING because I take a look at every aspect of your story, from the plot to the conflict to your choice of title. When I critique your novel, I determine weak areas and give you options of how to address these issues. I provide you with a detailed, 3-6 page report and may provide examples by commenting right on your manuscript using Track Changes in Word.
I recommend a manuscript critique for all writers that want to self-publish, as well as for writers that are having a hard time finding a traditional publisher.
Please be aware that all of my rates are in US dollars and exchange rates will apply. Canadian citizens agree to pay provincial and federal taxes.
What I do- While reading through your manuscript, I make notes on your novel's strengths and weaknesses. Some of the features that I will comment on are:
Point of View Issues
What's Next?- Now you go back through your novel and revise any areas that you want to make stronger. Once you have completed this revision, you may be ready to move on to editing, or you may want me to take a look a the changes that you made.
Subsequent Critiques- I offer a discount for second rounds of critiquing.
