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.

+ 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.
