You’ve written a book—a novel, a short story, a memoir or another work of nonfiction—and you’re wondering if it’s good enough to publish. Of course, you have friends and family who will tell you it’s brilliant, but where do you go if you want a professional evaluation?

You’ve come to the right place.

I will help you determine if the work is the best it can be, guide you to take it to that level, and show you the steps you should take to see your manuscript in print.

For fiction writers, I will help you explore creative writing ideas and will review such key elements as character development, structure, credibility, pacing, and voice and make sure these important elements are handled at publishing industry levels.

Nonfiction manuscripts will be evaluated on style, structure, flow, and how you identify and reinforce your core messages.

Professional Manuscript Review

Whether it’s a novel, a memoir, an essay, or a blog, I will give your manuscript a professional reading and come back to you with clear, actionable insights into how to make the writing better and more appealing to a publisher.

Marketing Your Book

It feels great to write something you believe in. It feels better to sell it to a publisher and gain readers and fans who are hungry for your content. Your manuscript review will also include an assessment of how marketable the work is in the current publishing climate. I will examine the subject matter, originality, and potential readership of the manuscript and then recommend the best course of action for you to take. This may include submission to literary agents, small presses or online journals, or self-publishing.

You will receive clear guidance on how to improve your manuscript, applause for what works, and direction for the next steps to take in your publishing journey.
