I consider myself a teacher, so my goal with each critique is not only to find and fix writing errors, but to teach how to recognize and fix each issue. This way, my clients take away more than just an edit of their work. They learn valuable lessons that can be applied to the piece submitted for the critique as well as all future writing.

I will read the first two pages of your manuscript and evaluate what your needs are to take your writing to the next level. . While I will not critique these pages, I will give you an idea of what type of errors I see to back up my recommendation.

If you are interested in taking advantage of this new service, please e-mail me at homestead1997-blog@yahoo.com with the following:
1) A brief paragraph about your writing journey.
2) A brief description about your manuscript.
3) The first 2 pages of your manuscript.

Full Critique:

What I include in my Critiques:
- mark spelling errors

- mark grammatical errors, tell why they are incorrect, and make suggestions on how to fix them

- mark stylistic errors, tell why they are incorrect, and make suggestions on how to fix them

- offer reader feedback. (anything that strikes me as odd or doesn’t make sense, anything that takes me out of the story or makes me reread, anything that tickles my funny bone, hits a nerve, or is particularly touching)

- make comments about the good things as well as the errors
