Manuscript Critique

A manuscript critique is a great way to start your editing process. It allows the author to see their work through a professional editor's (and reader's) eyes to eliminate confusion and make sure the tone and pacing of the story are captivating.

Using Microsoft Word's Track Changes feature, I will make comments directly on your document. I will highlight any areas that pull the reader out of your story and help you prevent plot holes as you move forward in your editing journey. This edit is not designed to prepare a book for publication. Its purpose is to give the author a better idea of which direction they should take while editing. 

Includes one pass and a brief reader report.
