Novel Critique

A Novel Critique provides an overview of the major issues in your novel. It covers both developmental and style-related issues. It will be returned to you in the form of a letter, which lists categorically the areas that could use improvement.

The Novel Critique includes advice on:

  • Voice/Style
  • Plot
  • Pacing
  • Characterization
  • Character Arc
  • Marketability
  • Age-Appropriateness (for YA and MG)

Each of the areas listed above will be assessed to identify your strengths and weaknesses and how each could be improved to boost your odds of publishing success.

The Novel Critique also identifies:

  • Plot Holes
  • Inconsistencies
  • Point of View Issues
  • Too Much or Too Little Description
  • Confusing Concepts (especially in SciFi & Fantasy)
  • And Anything Else that Could Hurt Your Odds of Publishing Success

Unlike the developmental edit, the Novel Critique does not include a chapter-by-chapter breakdown. It also does not include the sentence-by-sentence editing of a line edit. This is my lightest and cheapest editing option.Perfect for those who need guidance on where to focus their revisions.

COST: $10 per 1,000 words (minimum of 10,000 words)
