Manuscript Evaluation Services

An old typewriter and sheet of paper with a Russell Lynes quote under manuscript evaluation services that states "No author dislikes to be edited as much as he dislikes not to be published."

My manuscript evaluation services are usually the first step you’ll take in the editorial process.

As much as you may feel done after completing your manuscript, don’t let yourself off the hook. At this stage, an agent or publisher will typically provide their author with a dedicated editor to scrutinize the manuscript and offer comprehensive notes toward revision. Most unpublished writers, however, need to find this help independently.

If the details below don’t describe the type of professional editing services or analysis you think your manuscript needs at this stage, consult my other service definition pages for substantive editing, line editing, copy editing, and proofreading.

If you’re still unsure or would just like to see how I can be of help to you, contact me and we’ll determine your next best steps together. No more time and energy wasted second-guessing. I’ll show you what to fix and how.
