Manuscript Critique Service


You’re finished! Your book baby is done. You’ve slaved for months, years, decades, and now you’re ready to go. But are you?

There’s only one way to find out: An unbiased manuscript critique. 

My services include: 

  • An unbiased, honest opinion of your work.
  • Discussion of what I loved about your manuscript.
  • Discussion of what I liked about your manuscript.
  • What I wish had been included or omitted in your manuscript.
  • Comments on plot, characterization, dialogue, setting, and theme.
  • Suggestions about what I think might strengthen it.
  • Identification of issues such as repetition, timeline troubles, clichés, show vs tell, and anything else that jumps out at me, but I do not edit or proofread for critiques.
  • A write-up of approximately 1000-1500 words for a full length manuscript (85,000-120,000 words). I do not mark up manuscripts for critiques. Contact me to inquire about developmental editing if you are looking for a more in-depth analysis of your work.

A manuscript critique does not include:

  • Editing
  • Rewriting
  • Proofreading
  • Providing solutions – I may include suggestions.
  • Forwarding your work to publishers.

  • Your work is your work. Copyright is always yours.
  • I may love your work but cannot guarantee that others will.
  • I cannot guarantee you will be published.
  • Your privacy and confidentiality will remain respected at all times.
  • All communication is via email.
  • I reserve the right to return your manuscript with a full refund if I am unable to complete your critique.
  • I will respond to a few questions beyond the critique about your work, but am unable to engage in a lengthy conversation.
  • If prices are raised I will honor the price agreed upon.
  • All services are non-refundable.
  • Work begins when the payment is received.
Let’s get started!

Send an email to with a synopsis of your manuscript, word count, and the first 10 pages. I will reply with brief feedback so you can see how I work. My specialty is women’s fiction and chick lit, however I am open to other genres. If I do not feel I am a good fit for your manuscript or am booked for the time you require a critique, I can suggest other individuals who offer similar services.

I look forward to helping make your manuscript the best it can be!
