An editorial assessment is an excellent way to get an idea of how your current draft would fare in the wild. What might happen if you sent this out to agents right now? What kind of reviews would you get if you indie published this tomorrow? An editorial assessment will tell you.

With an editorial assessment, we’ll read the entire manuscript and make light annotations. When we’re finished reading, we’ll write a brief critique letter and schedule a 1-hour call to discuss your draft’s strengths and weaknesses. Is it time to send it out? Is it time to go back to the drawing board? We’ll give you our honest opinion, then help you decide which steps to take next.
