Are you preparing to submit your manuscript to an agent, editor, contest, etc.? This might be the service for you. What makes a reader take notice in the first few pages? This assessment looks for all those markers of a standout in the slush pile: engaging opening lines, strong character, distinctive voice, sparkling dialogue, clear stakes, and rising tension. In addition, I will cover basics such as grammar, sentence structure, appropriate word choice for the genre/age group, transitions, continuity, and more.
For this service, you will receive your manuscript with track changes and comments, plus a multi-page rubric that includes the following information:
- Character analysis
- Setting analysis
- Plot analysis
- Voice analysis
- Pacing analysis
- Dialogue analysis
Turnaround time depends on calendar availability.
