With this service, I will provide you with my own personal insights and feedback that pertains to your story through the eyes of a reader and a writer. My completed feedback/critique includes in-document comments on your MS, along with a separate summary document. A few specific things I keep an eye out for are:
- Plot Development Issues and Inconsistencies
- Does the plot flow smoothly?
- Is there any part of the story that is confusing or doesn’t seem to fit in?
- Is there anything condtradictory?
- Character Development
- Character Arcs
- Do the characters seem realistic in their personalities, actions, etc?
- Do characters say or do anything out of character or that contradicts or repeats something else?
- World Building
- Does the world/setting feel realistic/authentic?
- Do the basics of your world make sense in relation to your established rules (magic, sci-fi tech, etc)?
- Anything that I feel might take away from your story
- Things that I particularly enjoyed or found unique
Feel free to send me your own list or questionaire.
Please keep in mind that any and all feedback is simply my own personal opinion. I work with clients after they receive feedback to clarify any of my comments and suggestions or answer any further questions that were not addressed. I prefer New Adult and Adult Fantasy and Sci-Fi, though I am open to just about anything! I also prefer to work with Google Doc or Word.
Prices and Timetable
For basic Critique, I charge $0.001 per word (10k words = $10.00 USD). Typically, I am able to finish a completed manuscript in about a week or two depending on length and my schedule. Sometimes I can have a manuscript finished in just a few days. I am willing to work with writers on a budget, so feel free to message me to work out payment options. (I typically divide into three payments, but am willing to divide it further or make payment plans). I accept payments through PayPal and Venmo.
I am also willing to do a manuscript swap with anyone interested in providing feedback for my 96k dark romantic fantasy, Legends of Annun: The Messenger of Darnath – Origins of Jaykiren Blackshield (which you can read more about here).
