Author Services

I’m pleased to offer several Author Services. Once my schedule opens up, I may add more, so check back or reach out to me if you don’t see what you’re looking for.


Query Letter Critique

You finished the book, polished it, and are ready to jump into the query trenches. In order to grab a great agent's attention, you'll need a query letter that's just as polished as your manuscript. With my Query Letter Critique, you'll receive up to three passes at your query letter and I'll leave inline comments and suggestions on how to make your query stronger.



Submission Package Critique

Many agents require a synopsis and first pages when sending a query. With my Submission Package Critique, I'll do two passes at your query letter, synopsis up to 1,000 words, and the first ten pages of your manuscript. I'll leave inline comments and provide a detailed summary for the query and synopsis. I'll also leave inline comments, do a line edit and a copyedit on the first ten pages to make sure they sparkle. 


Manuscript Critique

You finished the first draft and know you’ll need to revise it, but don’t know what to do next. I’ll read your manuscript and look at all the big things: Plot, pacing, POV, themes, characters, etc. Just like with the query and submission packages, I’ll leave inline comments and suggestions, but I’ll also provide an edit letter outlining the areas that need some polishing and highlighting the things that already shine.
