Editorial Support



01Manuscript read

A standard manuscript read of a nonfiction book, novel or short story collection up to 100,000 words involves me reading your work and writing a report of 4-6,000 words. It takes about a month and costs £500.

02Manuscript read plus

I read your book and write an editorial report in the same way. We arrange one to three chats on Zoom about your work, usually over a three month period, but this can be negotiated. One session costs £99, three sessions cost £180.

 When you email me for a quotation, please tell me briefly about: 

  • your book and your ambitions for it,
  • any questions you have / challenges you're experiencing.
  • why you are seeking a manuscript read at this stage.
