Looking for a manuscript or query appraisal? I provide honest, editorial feedback that’s both market-aware and encouraging. 

Developing writers are welcome to submit the following:

  • Fiction (full MS or extract, synopsis, or query letter) – My main expertise is in YA and MG, but I also accept adult fiction. For full MS or extract, price by word count.
  • Non-fiction
  • Illustrated children’s fiction
  • Short stories

My detailed appraisals will focus on developmental and structural advice. What’s working? What isn’t? Based on my appraisals, I will also help skilled writers navigate the literary marketplace, guiding them through submitting to literary agents and suggesting appropriate avenues for publication.

I provide copyediting and proofreading on a case-by-case basis.

For more information and a detailed price structure, please contact me via my contact form (one tab over from “Consultancy,”) answering the following questions: What are you seeking to have assessed? How far along is the project? What is the word count?

I look forward to working with you!
