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.
