Manuscript Assessment

Whether you’ve written one book or fifty, it’s tough to be able to look at your story objectively. It’s also hard to be sure that everything you had in your mind while writing it was translated into that story on paper. A manuscript assessment is the best way to find out if there are problems with your story. We read your manuscript carefully and at the end of it we provide you with a comprehensive written report which includes:

  • story development;
  • the plot and subplots, including plot-holes and resolution;
  • character development;
  • language;
  • sentence structure;
  • action;
  • point of view;
  • dialogue;
  • consistency; and
  • descriptions


The benefit to you, in having a professional assessment, is that if your manuscript is not quite ready to send off to a publisher, this report will give you the tools – and the guidance – to take that next step.

We also understand that you will want your work assessed as quickly as possible. Our turnaround time is three weeks from the day payment is received.
