Have you written a short story or novel? Before you have your work professionally copyedited, you might consider a manuscript evaluation. This service is less expensive than a full copyedit and gives you an opportunity to address potential challenges in your manuscript.
My manuscript evaluation includes the following:
- Evaluation of writing technique (style and technical astuteness).
- Assessment of content (e.g, characterization, dialogue, credibility, narrative arc).
- Suggestions for developing/finessing the manuscript.
- Responses to three specific questions you submit with your manuscript.
