Manuscript evaluation, 65,001 to 100,000 words



A manuscript evaluation is my feedback on your manuscript’s strengths and weaknesses based on my experience as a book development editor, acquisitions editor, and literary agent.

I evaluate fiction in the following genres: romance (all subgenres), mystery, thriller, suspense, fantasy (all subgenres) and soft science fiction. I don’t evaluate horror, children’s, or YA. For other genres, check with me first (

I evaluate nonfiction book proposals and completed manuscripts in the self-help and how-to genres. (See the Book Proposal Critique option for that.)

The ms evaluation takes the form of a five-to-seven page revision letter that outlines my recommendations for your revision.

I charge $1000 for manuscripts from 65,001 – 100,000 words. Purchase this product if your ms is between 65,001 words and 100,000 words.

Use the Manuscript Evaluation, up to 65,000 words option for shorter mss. Reach out to me for a quote if your manuscript is longer than 100,000 words.

Manuscript evaluations typically take four-to-six weeks from the time of submission/payment. Email me first ( to confirm deadlines.
