How to Evaluate Your Manuscript


How to Evaluate Your Manuscript


We HIGHLY recommend that you stop at various points in your writing to evaluate and edit your work. Some people like to do this at the end of every chapter, but for others, that’s too choppy. So we suggest doing it at least every 50 pages. You don’t what to get 100 or 175 pages into a book and then realize you have made a fatal mistake!

We've designed a guide to tell you exactly what to look for and how you can fix the issues and fill the holes.

 

Are you making your point?                   Is your book lacking narrative drive?

                        Where are its biggest weaknesses?

AND MORE...                                                   

 

Don't keep writing blindly! Learn how to evaluate your manuscript and make sure your book is on the right track.

Manuscript Evaluation


Manuscript Evaluation


If you've written more than just a few chapters of your book, our Manuscript Evaluation is designed to give you an idea of its strengths and weaknesses before you continue writing or start revising.

One of our book coaches will review your manuscript and give you an overall analysis of what is working and what could be shored up on a big-picture scale. They will look at elements like narrative drive, tone and voice, structure, and consistency of theme.

You'll receive a 2-page summary of our thoughts and suggestions for what to focus on as you write forward or revise.

PLEASE NOTE that your book coach will be looking at the big picture rather than grammatical or technical mistakes. This is NOT a line edit or proofread.

GOT QUESTIONS?

+ How many pages can I have reviewed?

Our evaluations are priced by tier:

  • Up to 100 pages – $299
  • Up to 200 pages – $349
  • Up to 300 pages – $399

+ What kind of feedback will I receive?

Your book coach will use our Author Accelerator 10-point checklist to evaluate your manuscript and offer suggestions. They'll look for things like narrative drive, tone and voice, dialogue, mechanics, and the "why" behind your characters' motivations or the point of your book. You will receive a two-page summary of their biggest findings and suggestions for how to move forward and strenghten your manuscript.

+ How long will it take to get feedback?

It depends on the number of pages you've submitted:

  • Up to 100 pages – 2 weeks
  • Up to 200 pages – 2-3 weeks
  • Up to 300 pages – 3-4 weeks

+ Can I ask questions about my feedback?

Unfortunately, a manuscript evaluation doesn't include time to talk with your book coach about their feedback – that's by design so that we can keep the cost low. If you're interested in more back and forth with your coach, check out our manuscript edits or weekly book coaching. The edit includes a phone call with your book coach after you receive their feedback, and the coaching allows for ongoing email communication with your book coach.

Manuscript Edit


Manuscript Edit


Our Manuscript Edit looks at your entire story so far and gives you both a written analysis of its strength and weaknesses on a developmental level, and comments on specific elements in the text itself. Using a 15-point checklist, your book coach will look at narrative drive, tone and voice, structure, and consistency of theme, as well as things such as: Is Chapter 2 sagging? Are you effectively using flashbacks? And are you showing, rather than telling?

You'll receive a comprehensive summary of our thoughts and suggestions for what to focus on as you write forward or revise.

The Manuscript Edit comes with a phone call with your book coach after you receive your feedback so you can ask questions and discuss the best path forward for your manuscript.

PLEASE NOTE that your book coach will be looking at the big picture rather than grammatical or technical mistakes. This is NOT a line edit or proofread.

Your coach will also include suggestions for how to move forward and strenghten your manuscript. You'll have the chance to talk with your coach by phone after you receive their feedback to ask them any questions.

Of course! CLICK HERE.

Yes! You can ask your book coach any questions you have about their feedback after you review it. The manuscript edit comes with one follow-up email exchange (one email from you with your questions, and one response from your coach with their answers) OR a phone call (approximately 1 hour). You can let us know which method you'd like to use. If you'd like ongoing email communication with your book coach, we recommend our weekly book coaching.
