The popular choice for writers who want to know where their manuscript stands in terms of readiness for an agent or publisher. Characters, plot, voice, world, setting, pace, and structure are assessed and scored in terms of sales potential. Strengths, as well as challenges are called out. A minimum of 10 single-spaced pages of notes are provided as well as the next step(s) forward. Find out what's right, what needs fixing and what is spot-on. One-hour phone call or Skype call included so you can ask Elaine questions directly.
Pricing starts at $500. to $1,200. depending upon word count.
THE ULTIMATE EDIT
When it's just got to get published. Supervised rewrites to professional standards. We work until it's ready. Then the manuscript launches with my query service until it finds an agent or a publisher. It all starts with a "Snapshot" assessment and the cost is subtracted from the Ultimate Edit. My clients are proof that it works.

Get an agent or publisher
Need help getting an agent? It starts with a great query letter. I will help you assemble all the elements of a great query—synopsis, writer's bio, genre, word count and more. Then I select dozens of potential leads, and send out queries on your behalf. It generally takes several rounds of correspondence before an agent makes an offer, and I will handle it all, under your supervision, to make sure everything is handled correctly and professionally. These days, when some agents do not respond at all (not even with an automated reply) my response rate is around 85%. I also handle nonfiction book proposals and pitches directed to publishers.
Every service comes with a confidentiality agreement. Your intellectual property is protected.
