Assessments of publisher proposals

If you are preparing to submit your manuscript to a publisher we can provide valuable feedback on your submission.

We will look at two chapters of your manuscript (up to 6,000 words), as well as on your one-page synopsis, covering letter and other materials.

A publisher proposal assessment evaluates how clear your proposal is, whether or not the covering letter reflects the nature of the manuscript sample and how attractive your manuscript may be to commercial publishers.
