Manuscript and Publishing Consultation
Many writers and editors offer consultation services but the quality varies widely. A surprising number of them have never even been published. They don't have the experience, track record, or contacts of an insider.
I charge a flat fee to study a manuscript of typical length and write a commentary about the material – its strengths, weaknesses, suggestions on genre and structure, and marketability. I work with aspiring writers as well as experienced authors such as those who have earned an MFA in Creative Writing and have found publication just out of reach.
I am available also to publishers who are "on the fence" about someone's manuscript and are looking for a fresh pair of very experienced eyes for an outside opinion.
