What's Included

After reading your manuscript, I'll send you a report with the following elements, drawing on specific examples from your writing. 

Two synopses—one short, one detailed—that you can draw from for pitches, query letters, and promotions.

A logline that captures your book in one succinct sentence.

A summary of your manuscript's strengths so that you know what's working well—and why.

An analysis of your book's structure, writing style, genre, and intended audience. 

Recommendations for improvement so that you have concrete next steps in revising your manuscript or preparing it for publication

Bonus! I offer a 15% discount on editing services for manuscripts I have evaluated. 

Pricing

I charge $5 per 1,000 words + $100, plus applicable taxes. For example, an 80,000-word manuscript would cost $500 plus tax.

 

Projects of 150,000+ words will receive a custom quote.​

Request a Manuscript Evaluation

Tell me a little about your book and why you're looking for an evaluation. I'll get back to you to confirm pricing and next steps within two business days.
