Struggling with a manuscript? Want an editor’s opinion? Before you revise again or pay for an edit, compare what my reviews offer you.
My Reader’s Reports are usually two to three pages, or 500 to 750 words. They are suitable for the first draft of a manuscript, but may be useful for writers who have done several revisions.
Manuscript Evaluations are intended for writers who have revised several times. For this review I usually write between five and ten pages, and they contain the features of Reader’s Reports with greater detail and deeper analysis.
