A manuscript evaluation is exactly that: an evaluation. Your manuscript will be assessed for its strengths and weakness. The assessment includes a detailed written report complete with examples, ideas and next steps to capitalize on the manuscript's strengths and to improve on its weaknesses.
This includes analyzing the following:
Strength of the plot and story line
Strength of the character development
Flow of dialogue and its relationship to characterization
Strength of world building
Believability of the overall story, characters and world
Strength of the writing
Style and voice of the writing in relation to the story
Marketability of the manuscript
In addition to the written report, assessments can also be set up via phone or Skype.
