Professional eyes on your draft
A manuscript evaluation is a big-picture analysis, focusing on foundational elements like theme, plot structure, character development, pacing, and potential marketability.
This feedback is great if you don't want or need a full developmental edit, but you're seeking something more involved than a beta reader would give you.
Submit your full manuscript, or just that one chapter that's been giving you trouble.
What you get:
A detailed report summarizing the key strengths and areas for improvement in your manuscript, giving you a clear picture of where you stand, including:
Constructive Critique: Insightful feedback on crucial elements like plot structure, character development, pacing, and dialogue, ensuring your story's foundation is rock solid.
Market Viability Analysis: An assessment of your manuscript’s potential in the current market, helping you understand how your story might be received by readers and publishers.
Actionable Recommendations: Practical, tailored suggestions for improvement, enabling you to take the next steps in refining your manuscript.
Encouragement and Support: Positive reinforcement highlighting your strengths as a writer, providing you with the confidence and motivation to continue your creative journey.

How does this differ from developmental editing?
Developmental editing is way more involved. In addition to the editorial letter, you receive:
Extensive in-line comments throughout the manuscript
A much larger editorial letter, including feedback on 38 story elements
A revision plan
Charts and graphs illustrating data on your novel
