Does Your Story Start with a Bang?

Five to ten pages.

That’s how long any publishing house reader or prospective agent will initially invest in your book.

If the story doesn’t captivate and impress by the time those pages have gone by, your dreams of making it beyond the slush pile will all but have evaporated.

The same is true for readers and reviewers, even if your book is complete and self-published. People simply don’t want to invest their time in writing that fails to grip and entertain from the off.

Give your readers what they need with the help of honest, impartial feedback from AutoCrit.

“Excellent quality, filled with recommendations, advice and content, as promised. There was a LOT more added into it than I was expecting to receive. What an eye opener this was for me!”
