Q: I have just written the first draft of my book.  Should I use your services?

A:  No.  Before considering any manuscript evaluation service, your book should have undergone several drafts.

Q: What is the difference between a manuscript evaluation and a substantive edit?

A:  A manuscript evaluation is for writers who are not quite ready to submit their manuscript to a publisher or agent. A substantive edit is designed for writers readying their final manuscript for submission to a publisher or agent or to self-publish.

Q: Do you guarantee that my book will be published if I pay for your manuscript evaluation service?

A:  Absolutely Not!  Publishers have their own criteria for choosing manuscripts to publish; we have no control over this process.

Q: What if I decide to self-publish?

A: Then our manuscript evaluation service will be very helpful to you. For starters, you may decide after reading the evaluation that your manuscript is not quite ready to self-publish (which will save you money in the long run.)
