As an author, I have been honing my craft for over ten years. With years of experience in critiquing for other writers–published and unpublished–I have developed a keen eye for editing fiction. I specialize in Young Adult, but I am also well-versed in fantasy (particularly dark and urban fantasy), horror, and paranormal.
Query – $10 (two passes)
Polishing a query can be nightmarish. As a fiction writer, I have critiqued and edited hundreds of queries for fellow writers over the past three years–a few of which snagged agents. Let me help you sharpen yours!
Query & Synopsis – $20 (two passes)
Ah, the synopsis. This is the one challenge every querying writer dreads. Let me help! While the query and synopsis tend to be quite different from each other, one tends to borrow and build upon the other’s strengths. Let’s make them shine!
Critique of first ten pages – $20 (one pass)
Those critical opening pages can be nerve-wracking! Critique will include line edits and feedback in Track Changes. I will examine all the major points: plot, pacing, characters, description, point of view, and dialog.
Submission package – $40 (Query, synopsis, and first ten pages)
Exactly what it says on the tin—everything you need be prepared! This includes everything in the smaller packages above: two passes of your query and synopsis, and one pass of your first ten pages.
Partial manuscript critique
50 pages – $100
100 pages – $200
When agents request a “partial,” they usually ask for the first 50 to 100 pages of your manuscript. We’ll pop the hood and make sure your pages are as enticing as possible. From story and character arcs to dialog and description, we’ll tighten and polish to perfection.
Sensitivity read (up to 90,000 words) – $200
Does your book address trauma, but you’re unsure how it reads? I can help. Trauma is #ownvoices territory for me. I studied it extensively as an undergrad, and worked with many traumatized clients in an acute psychiatric setting. I can help you examine characters struggling with dissociation, symptoms of acute and post-traumatic stress, and developmental trauma.
