How do I know if a Manuscript Evaluation right for me?
This service is for anyone who needs help with their manuscript and knowing what to focus on next - whatever that looks like specifically for you.
This service may be right for you if:
You're unsure how to proceed into the next round of revisions.
Not sure if elements of your story are working together.
The draft is just finished and you'd like fresh eyes to help guide you in revisions
You'd just like some help moving forward in your project.
Are there any real benefits to getting a Manuscript Evaluation?
Manuscript Evaluations allow a fresh set of eyes to analyze your work and help you identify the strengths and weaknesses that need addressing to help you bring your overall vision to life.
It's a service that greatly benefits any author looking to improve their work, get a new perspective on their work, or seeking help with what comes next with their manuscript.
Some of those benefits are:
Knowing if your opening chapter works for the piece.
Fresh eyes on the areas you're concerned about
A sensitivity check if you are writing characters outside of your personal experience.
Know if your target audience is the right audience for the work.
Is my work eligible for a Manuscript Evaluation?
The great thing about manuscript evaluations is that they apply to any manuscript, in any stage, and work of any length.
What genres do you work with?
I am open to working with most genres. Such as (but not limited to):
Romance and its sub-genres.
Science Fiction and Fantasy.
LIMITED Non-Fiction. *
However, it's important to note that I am NOT the best fit for the following genres:
*If you wish to inquire about a non-fiction piece, or you're unsure if I accept your genre, please reach out to me directly.
What is the minimum or maximum word count you accept?
The minimum word count would be 1k and currently, I see no need to set a max limit for what I'll review/read for any service.
I also work on a chapter by chapter basis, as well as any other part by part arrangement you'd like to discuss.
What does a Sample Edit encompass?
After you fill out this form I will contact you to ask any additional questions I may have as well as request a sample of your manuscript so I can demonstrate my skill in the requested service.
I'll then return the completed sample edit and you'll have the option to meet with me for a one-on-one chat to discuss your project, and any questions you may have. From there, you'll be able to judge it according to your own standards.
