Manuscript Feedback

Do you need 1:1 help with pinpointing where you can strengthen your full, final manuscript? Are you not getting the responses from agents or publishers you were hoping for? See a problem but don’t know how to fix it? Then in-depth feedback from me as a professional book coach might be exactly what you need in order to make your story even stronger than it is!

WHAT YOU GET: Personal in-depth feedback on your story detailing what works well already and what needs further revision.

Be warned: in-depth means I will go deep into how you can improve your story. Hearing that elements need to be improved when you feel like you’ve done all you can on a manuscript will sting, there is no way around that! So be prepared for that, but in the knowledge that I come from a place of kindness and that I give my feedback because I want you to write the best story you possibly can! So also know you will most likely want to revise further after we work together.

Includes:

  • Intro call to talk about your story, your goals for it and where in particular you need me to pay attention to. We will also talk about how feedback might land for different people.
  • Overall in-depth summary – at least 5 page, depending on your personal wishes – feedback on your manuscript (The return of the feedback depends on the story’s word count. From 4-8 weeks.)
  • In-line comments on the first chapter/first 25 pages
  • Subsequent video call about the feedback, how you feel about it and next steps for you to take
  • Follow-up call a month on to see where you are and how you feel about the feedback and your story

What you get from me:

  • Personal attention: you won’t simply get a document back with feedback. I treat your manuscript as a product of you the writer and therefore we will talk about your hopes and wishes for your manuscript before I dive in. Afterwards we will again meet virtually to talk about my feedback, how it landed for you, clear up any confusion and make sure you know what steps to take next to make your story as incredible as it can possibly be
  • Clarity on what is working well in your story and what needs further attention
  • Clear next steps to make your story even better

Your one-time investment depends on the word count of your full manuscript (VAT included, exchange rates apply):

  • -100k: €729
  • 100k-150k: €839
  • For a higher word count contact me for an exact estimate.

*Any manuscripts above 150k are probably better suited as multiple books in a series or will require fierce revision to decide what you truly want to convey in your book. Do contact me too if you struggle with this!

What I don’t offer:

  • Teaching basic writing skills, such as formatting, grammar, tense, point of view, etc.
  • Editorial services, such as formatting and spelling and grammar checks.
  • Pitching packages.
  • Any kind of promise of agent or publishing deals. My coaching is focused on personal growth as a writer; not on getting published per sé – though it would be a wonderful outcome!
