GET PUBLICATION READY

My non-judgemental manuscript critiques are specially designed for independent authors who are ready to take their writing to a professional level.

 

My Services.

As a self-published author, I know how daunting it can be to share your precious work with an editor. That's why I focus on prioritising your voice and intention in my edits. 

It's not my job to tell you how to write your book. I'm simply here to offer expert guidance to help you realise your potential and connect to your readers.

1

FULL DEVELOPMENTAL EDIT

Substantive feedback for authors determined to write their best work.

INCLUDES:

  • 1 detailed editorial report

  • helpful in-line comments on your manuscript

This is a non-judgemental critique, designed to help you refine your work at content level. You will receive a detailed analysis of your plot, characterisation, world building, pacing, conflict, genre and more, plus professional guidance to help you improve.

2

MANUSCRIPT CRITIQUE

A lighter version of my developmental edit for authors on a budget.

INCLUDES:

  • helpful in-line comments on your manuscript

     ONLY

As above, this is a non-judgemental critique, designed to help you refine your work at content level. You will still receive detailed analysis of your work, plus professional guidance to help you improve. Feedback will be delivered as comments direct to your manuscript.
