  • Fantasy, inc. contemporary and urban fantasy

This is for writers who are looking for thoughtful, objective feedback to take their book to the next level.

Whether you’re on your first or tenth draft, interested in indie publishing or agent querying, I’ll assess your manuscript and provide a detailed editorial letter outlining its strengths and weaknesses and suggesting improvements.

The typical assessment report is about 500 words for every 10,000 words of your manuscript.

    $25 USD for every extra 5k words
