If you are a writer working on a novel or collection of short stories that needs an experience writer’s eyes, I can help by reading and offering notes on plot, characterization, theme, voice, point-of-view, and more.
Once you contact me, I will request a synopsis of your novel or story collection. After receiving that, I’ll let you know if I’m available for consultation. When we agree to work together, I will require a hard copy of your printed-out manuscript (sent via Canada Post) which I will then read. Within six weeks of receipt, I will email you my notes. At that point you will have the opportunity to either exchange a few emails with me with any follow-up questions, or we can discuss the notes over video call.
Cost: a flat reading fee of $200 plus $1.50 per manuscript page. For example, a 200 page manuscript would cost $515 ($200 + $300). Manuscripts should be in Times New Roman, font 12, double-spaced (please spell check and refine your grammar as much as you can).
If you are interested in working with me, drop me a line to discuss details. I look forward to meeting you and to reading your work!
