Manuscript Evaluation


A manuscript evaluation is an in-depth analysis of your manuscript and includes, but is not limited to, an examination of:

  • your story structure

  • your story dynamics

  • aspects of your writing (mechanics)

  • how your manuscript fits the genre

A manuscript evaluation report is completed after reading the manuscript in its entirety. The report is typically five to ten pages, depending on the elements and recommendations required for your manuscript. Suggestions and guidance, along with resources on each subject, will be included.

I also include light markup on the manuscript to highlight specific areas that need revision or expansion and can also indicate examples of grammatical errors or style errors. Recommendations and information for your next steps on the path to publication will also be included in the report.


The primary genres that I do manuscript evaluations for are: mysteries, thrillers, memoirs, children's, creative nonfiction, and literary fiction.


  • Novels 30,000 to 60,000 words: $370 (USD) or $475 (CAD)

  • Novels 60,000 to 80,000 words: $470 (USD) or $600 (CAD)

  • Novels 80,000 to 110,000 words: $570 (USD) or $725 (CAD)

Prices vary depending on your manuscript needs. Please get in touch for a quote for your manuscript.
I take pride in quality work at an affordable price. It is also my goal to make my editing services as accessible as possible, so payment plans that work within your budget are available upon request.
