Win a Manuscript Evaluation from book coach, Stuart Wakefield.
A Manuscript Evaluation is a rigorous, chapter-by-chapter analysis of everything that needs to be cleaned up, fixed, or overhauled in a book. It is often known as a developmental edit, and the result is an editorial letter to you that details how to proceed in taking the work to the next level.
Well, that's what it usually is, but who wants a letter when they can have a constructive letter, in-line comments throughout their manuscript, and a 60-minute meeting to talk it all through?
The letter helps you see what you are doing well—and what you could do better—and provides clear guidance for your next steps.
The in-line comments help you see what's referred to in the letter—but in detail. The meeting helps you discuss what questions you have, spitball a few ideas, and ensure you're in a place where you can write forward with confidence.
