Authors, Is it Time?
What does Books and Pens on Green Gables do during a manuscript review?
A manuscript review is often the first time an author has another set of eyes on their newest work.
When Books and Pens does a manuscript review, we'll begin with several questions.
A few of those include:
What stage of writing is your manuscript in?
What is the genre?
Who is your audience?
What is the tone you want your book to convey?
Once I receive your manuscript, I will do a thorough reading, making notes as I go. I will note things such as:
Where were strong points/weaker points?
Did the character descriptions let me know who was who shortly after meeting them?
Did the tone fit with the genre/audience it was meant for?
Did I get confused by any of the details?
Were there too many characters to keep track of?
Were there areas that need more details to help them stand out?
Once I have completed reading the manuscript, we'll meet via video to talk about it. Before this consultation, I'll send you the complete report so we can go through it together.
I look forward to working with you! Please contact me with questions! firstname.lastname@example.org
