• Manuscript Critique-Plus

    Finished a draft of your first chapter, your full book, or other writing project? With a critique-plus, your WriteByNight expert reader will take the deepest of deep dives into your work.

    Your reader will read your work twice: Once for comprehension and familiarity, and a second time to offer written feedback (i.e., margin notes) from a place of total awareness of what’s to come.

    You’ll then have a 60-minute open discussion with your reader to talk about this feedback and next steps. Pick your reader’s brain to get all of your questions answered, whether about the book itself, its best path to publication, or any of the steps in between.

    We consider large craft issues such as plot, structure, setting, characterization, point of view, voice, and style, as well as small issues such as consistency, repetition, and descriptive details.
