I can do a partial or full manuscript assessment depending on your needs. As part of my manuscript assessment services, I offer a comprehensive assessment of your manuscript, focusing on:

  • Structure
  • Pacing
  • Plot
  • Character
  • Themes
  • Voice
  • Dialogue
  • Setting

The report will include:

  • 2-4 pages (depending on length of manuscript), outlining your manuscript’s strengths and weaknesses
  • Comments on genre suitability
  • Advice on market suitability if requested/necessary 


  • Marked up manuscript: I can mark up your manuscript with suggestions and detailed examples to illustrate the changes that I feel will strengthen your manuscript. This will give you a more indepth editorial to help you truly make your manuscript shine
  • One on One Chat: Being an author myself, I understand how personal this is to you, so I also offer the personal touch. Upon request, I can have a one-hour face to face chat with you about your work either in person or via Skype or phone call


4-8 weeks depending on length of manuscript and whether you’ve included any add-ons to your package


Fees are based on word count.
