Manuscript Review


Here’s where I give you the tools to perfect your manuscript so you feel confident enough to approach a publisher with it (or to publish it yourself).

You’ve written your business book (or got part way there) – that’s amazing!  I hope you’re feeling proud. But there’s something stopping you from going further. You know it needs editing and revising, but how much? Is it giving out the right message to your readers? Would they enjoy it and find it a persuasive read? Would a publisher be interested in it? How do you know?

It’s so hard to be objective when it’s your own book. That’s normal – all authors find it difficult to see the gold in their own work, as well as the bits that need improving. That’s why you need my manuscript review service.

What you receive

A concise report with the following essential feedback:

  • Key strengths and weaknesses (don’t worry, I’m honest but kind and I’ll find strengths you didn’t know existed).
  • A breakdown of your market from a publisher’s perspective (this is essential whether you’re self-publishing or going for a traditional publisher).
  • An overview of what your readers are likely to think and feel about it.
  • A clear set of 3 to 4 recommendations for you to follow to perfect your manuscript.

I don’t drown you with detail: your document will consist of approximately 3 pages of intensely useable feedback.

What it’s not

  • A detailed, page by page analysis of your manuscript. For that you need an editor (ask me if you’re not sure).
