Manuscript evaluation, up to 65,000 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 most 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 $750 for manuscripts up to 65,000 words (fiction or nonfiction). Purchase this product if your ms is 65,000 words or fewer.

Use the Manuscript Evaluation, 65,001 up to 100,000 words option for longer 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.
