I assess unpublished manuscripts by clients looking for detailed feedback on their work with a view to making it publishable. This means creating a detailed report, usually running to many thousands of words, commenting on and offering ways of improving the manuscript on all levels ranging from grammar to the overall plot. If the novel isn't yet publishable, I offer advice on what next steps to take in the editing process. With more than ten years experience as a full-time novelist, I draw on my own years of experience writing, revising and submitting novels to help novice writers find a way to achieve their goals.
