Query Letter Critique

Turn your query letter into a powerful sales tool with this critique. This option includes: a query structure review, editing (content), and suggestions to strengthen your query to help catch an agent's eye.

Synopsis Critique

After spending so much time writing a full, fleshed-out story, sometimes the synopsis can be the hardest part! Submit your synopsis for a full review to prioritize which details are important, decide which can be left out, and how to keep it to a reasonable length. 


Query Package

Get ready to send your project out to editors with the full query package, including: Query Letter Critique, Three Chapter Critique, and Synopsis Critique.

Line Edit

Feel confident even in the most minor details of your manuscript by working with a line edit. Combing through the details of your story, the line edit makes sure everything reads as smoothly as possible, giving in-line feedback on sentence flow, word repetitions, scene continuity, paragraphs/scene transitions, language choice, and more. 

 

Developmental Edit

A developmental edit is an in-depth look at your story and scenes as a whole to make sure everything comes together and presents as the gripping tale you know it to be. This edit includes a full edit letter, in-line comments on the plot cohesion, character development, scene/story continuity and more.


The last glance

 After so many rounds of writing, rewriting, and editing, it can be hard to see the forest for the trees. Having an outside perspective on your story, one last look before you hit "send" or "publish," can be extremely beneficial. A lighter look than a line or developmental edit, this is a read through the story for any last-minute adjustments that might need to be made.

Susan is the best editor I’ve ever worked with. She can literally transform a novel with her feedback, tireless diligence, and insightful suggestions. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
