You’ve worked hard on your manuscript. Soon, it’ll be time to find an agent or publisher who will take it on, or to begin the expensive process of self-publishing to a professional standard.
But how do you know if your book is truly ready?
Agents receive thousands of queries each year, which means they’re reading through books at lightning speed with no time to give feedback on what specifically works and doesn’t work about a novel. The only way to be sure that your work is as good as you think it is, and that there aren’t any fatal flaws in the plot, character development or pacing, is to have outside eyes look at it.
And for the best results, those outside eyes ought to be those of an industry professional who lives and breathes storytelling.
With AutoCrit’s Story Inspection service, we’ll help you uncover key strengths and weaknesses in your book’s plot, character development, world building and pacing, and pinpoint the areas that are likely to cause trouble for readers, agents, or potential publishers of your work.
As part of your assessment package, you’ll receive:
Note that this is not a complete developmental edit and does not include fixes of every potential line editing issue, nor is it a corrective proofread.
Instead, we’re taking an overall look at the most important thing: your storytelling.
That said, if something does stand out as a structural issue that gets in the way of your story, we will of course point it out in your review (excessively long paragraphs are a good example!).
At a flat fee of just 1 cent per word, AutoCrit’s Story Inspection is an accessible entry point to expert feedback. If you’re not sure what the next course of action should be for your completed manuscript, it’s just the thing for you.
This service is available for manuscripts starting at a length of 10,000 words.
