Our Manuscript Edit looks at your entire story 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 evaluate questions 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.

Note: Your book coach will be looking at the big picture rather than grammatical or technical mistakes. This is NOT a line edit or proofread.
