Novel editing and manuscript critique 

Michelle provides in-depth critique of short stories, novels and memoirs and offers the following: 

  • The Summary
    • A thorough read and summary of your manuscript. This is what agents want to see when you are pitching your work.
  • The Summary + detailed notes 
    • This is a summary of your work plus notes on things like character, plot, tension, arc, voice and setting. What’s happening and when? What leaves your readers wanting more? Where are opportunities to make your scenes stronger, your characters more connective and your plot lines more stirring?
  • It’s all in the details 
    • This is the nitty-gritty editing part: a thorough read of your manuscript with detailed notes and edits, pointing out things like confusing sentences, word choice, clarity, typos and overall areas for improvement. Many clients seek this step first, complete their edits, then send back for an overall summary and unique new look at their work.
