Manuscript Critiques

Manuscript Critiques

I provide one-on-one critique services for novels and picture book texts. Contact me to discuss your proposed project. We will discuss your particular project, but in general, I charge:

  • For novels: $0.015 per word
  • For picture book texts up to 1000 words: $50

I work with documents in Word or Google Docs, double-spaced, 12 pt Times New Roman, numbered pages, contact information and word count on the first page. Payment is invoiced securely via PayPal.

Thanks for the high-quality and quick feedback!  Your responses were very clear and made sense.
