A manuscript critique focuses on the high-level structure and content of your manuscript. It takes a look at the overarching plot, pacing, character development, writing style, story impact, world-building, and level of detail, and provides feedback on what works and what doesn't work within the big picture of the story.


It addresses the same points as a developmental edit, but it provides less feedback. A manuscript critique can be a cost-effective way to get feedback on your story, especially if you have done several revisions already and think your manuscript has a solid base.

Although I don't offer sample edits of my critique service, I'm happy to describe what sort of feedback you'll receive and show you an example feedback report. If you have additional questions, please check the FAQ. They may be answered there!


My critique service is $0.007 per word. I provide a 6 - 10 page feedback report with sections addressing plot, pacing, writing style, characters, relationships, world-building, and level of detail. I do not provide comments within the manuscript for manuscript critiques. If you are looking for that, please consider developmental editing.


Upon booking, a 20% deposit will be required for projects over $150. Full payment will be required before you receive the finished feedback report and manuscript. Standard billing is done through PayPal invoices. If you have scheduling or payment questions, please check the FAQ. They may be answered there!
