Not ready for a full critique or edit? Ideal for new novelists, this service provides you with insights into the effectiveness of your novel’s opening and detailed feedback on your writing style. I’ll also let you know what I think your next move should be in your writing/publishing journey.
An Editorial Appraisal helps you understand where your novel-writing skills stand in the grand scheme of things. I’ll address:
Your feedback was written really constructively. You were interested in me as a writer and what I had to say. I realised I was working with someone, rather than just taking feedback from someone.
Investing in whole-manuscript editing can be a pricey affair, but with an editorial appraisal, you’ll get a professional opinion on your manuscript without breaking the bank.
It’s so hard to assess the level of your own writing skill. An outside opinion can help you feel assured you aren’t being overly confident or damningly depreciative of your abilities.
I won’t leave you wondering what to do next. Once I’ve assessed your writing, I’ll let you know what I think your next best move will be, so you can move forward with confidence.
It can be scary asking for feedback. But I’m in your corner. I promise to treat your writing with the utmost sensitivity while always focussing on helping you become a better writer.
Sophie edits with a gentle but meticulous hand – adding sparkle to a writer’s words without damaging their authorial voice. Highly recommended.
Use the form below to request an editorial appraisal and to tell me a bit about your novel and publishing intentions.
I’ll email you back to let you know when I have time in my schedule to conduct your editorial appraisal. If my timeframe works for you, let me know and at the same time send me your novel’s first 5,000 words as a Word document.
My feedback will be presented as a short PDF report, with comments and edits made directly to your manuscript file too. I’ll send all this to you by the agreed-upon date along with the invoice for payment. And that’s it!
You have been a star, have put up with me with grace and have completed everything and more with style and candour. I hope to work with you again and look forward to it.
