LET ME HELP YOU
BECOME A BETTER WRITER!

With one-on-one manuscript critiques

As an author, I strongly believe it’s essential to have your work critiqued by someone other than your mother or best friend. In fact, the more people reading your work and offering gems of advice and manuscript critiques, the better. Still, I also believe there is value in having someone experienced in the publishing industry review your work as well. That’s where I come in.

I offer a variety of services put in place to help you on your road to publication, from a straightforward query letter critique, to an entire in-depth manuscript critique, and everything in between. While I cannot guarantee that you’ll secure an agent or a publishing contract, my goal is to get you as close as possible.

WHY USE ME FOR A MANUSCRIPT CRITIQUE?

I’m a New York Times bestselling author who actually enjoys critiquing the work of others. My query letter and manuscript for OF POSEIDON garnered four offers of representation, and once agented, the manuscript sold within two weeks of being on submission to a major publishing house (Feiwel and Friends/Macmillan). I’d love to share all I’ve learned with you as you embark on your journey to publication.

WHAT DOES A CRITIQUE INVOLVE?

I offer a line-by-line critique of your entire manuscript. I will comb through every word, looking for strong sentence structure, engaging plot points, voice, world building, and character development. I’ll let you know which parts are working, which parts are not, and a solution(s) to the areas that need work. After I’ve had a chance to review your work, and offer a critique, we will discuss my findings by phone to make sure you understand my suggestions and in case you have questions for me.
