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.
