Manuscript Evaluation

A manuscript evaluation is a concise big-picture analysis that will evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your manuscript and provide suggestions for improvement.

If you’re looking for general feedback on plot, structure, characterization, narrative voice, writing style, narrative flow/pace, and setting, this is a good place to start. Once I’ve completed the evaluation, you’ll receive a two- to three-page report, but there will be no markup in the actual manuscript.

This review provides an affordable assessment of your work in progress; it also gives you a sense of my editing style in case you are thinking about working with me on a full developmental edit, a line edit, or a copyedit. If you decide to move forward with a full edit within 30 days of the evaluation, a portion of the cost of the evaluation will be applied to the full edit.
