If your manuscript has been rejected by literary agents or publishers and you don’t know why, or if you simply want an “outsider’s” viewpoint on what works and what doesn’t in your manuscript, then our Manuscript Analysis service may be for you.
After analyzing your work, we will provide a five-to-eight page report (or a two-to-four page report on manuscripts under 25,000 words) that identifies your strengths and weaknesses. We’ll offer suggestions on plot, character development, dialogue, point of view, pacing and other writing techniques. [This service does not include a line-by-line edit.]
If you like what you see and decide to use our manuscript editing and critiquing service for the same work, we will apply 50 percent of the critique payment toward the price of a full edit.
Rates are 1 cent per word. To calculate your total, multiply your total word count by [rate for the service]. Round off to the nearest whole dollar, and, on the next screen, enter this number as the quantity. Then click on the “Update Totals” icon. A $75 minimum per manuscript applies.
