I offer two types of critique – summary and inline. Both types will comment on the same areas, but the inline critique will focus much more on specific problem (and golden) areas and specific suggestions on how to remedy those problems. The summary critique will point out the general feeling of the piece and its flaws. The summary critique is more aligned with beta reading and the inline critique is more aligned with line edits (see the Edit page FAQ). The substantive edit incorporates both but for a whole novel.
Critiques are on a chapter-by-chapter basis, or 3500-word submissions where longer chapters are involved or long short stories.
If you are considering a full novel substantive edit, why not first try me out with a stand-alone critique? All full novel edits that have already tried out a critique receive an automatic discount to accommodate any initial trials. Alternatively, if you need to space out your budget, you can book a block of 10k words so you can progress your project at a steady pace at a price you can afford.
Services can be paid for through Paypal or by direct bank transfer. Please email me in the first instance with your word count, genre and if you would like a summary or inline critique.
