A manuscript appraisal is based on a thorough reading of your full fiction or non-fiction manuscript, including memoirs and business books.

My appraisals are extensive, not mere manuscript assessments with no follow-up. A 40-minute phone conversation is included in the cost of the appraisal, scheduled two weeks after you receive your report so that you have time to digest the feedback and pose clarifying questions.

The detailed written report includes a summary of the work’s strengths and areas to improve, as well as in-situ examples of these in the author’s work. I also include suggestions for possible steps during the next draft. If required, we can develop your work further with story coaching.

Know your work is ready for a manuscript appraisal? Read these submission guidelines then submit via email.

If you’re not sure if the work is ready, email me with your questions.
