Do I do copy editing or proof editing?
Not at this time. This is a structural assessment of your manuscript, and while there may be some line editing as part of the assessment, you may still require a copyedit and or/proof edit of your manuscript before submitting.
Will I refer you to an agent/publisher?
I will not directly refer your work to a publisher, commissioning editor or agent, however I can advise on where to send your manuscript if it is within my specialising genres. You may not use my name as a referee on submission of your manuscript unless I have read the finished product and prior agreement has been made for this to occur.
Do I offer discounts for multiple viewings of a manuscript?
When you have worked through your manuscript after the assessment, if you wish for a second appraisal, a discount of 20% may be offered. This offer is extended only if you have done the work outlined in the original assessment and only a report is needed.
Do I offer discounts for series?
No. If a book is part of a series, each book is considered to be a separate appraisal, however, a discount can be negotiated for multiple viewings (see FAQ on multiple viewings).
What genres do I specialise in?
- Genre Fiction: I assess works of fiction in all genres, although I do specialise in paranormal, fantasy, sci-fi, romantic suspense, contemporary romance, historical romance and YA
- Historical Fiction
- Women’s Fiction
- Non-Fiction: memoirs
Do I assess/mentor fiction or non-fiction works?
I mostly specialise in genre fiction, but have also assessed/mentored literary historical fiction, women’s fiction as well as non-fiction memoirs.
I do not assess or mentor non-fiction works other than memoirs at this time.
