Introducing Gentle Critiques

Not sure if you’re ready for critique? Maybe you’re new to writing or you’ve gotten harsh or confusing feedback from critique partners in the past. Maybe you’re overwhelmed when you see too much feedback on one page. If this sounds like you, then you might be interested in my new editorial service – gentle critiques.

Gentle critiques are great for writers who have never had feedback or who are easily overwhelmed by feedback. Send me your first 3 pages, and I will pick out 3 things you are doing well and give you 2- 3 gentle suggestions for improvement. I will not tell you everything that needs work, just 2 or 3 things to work on (your choice of how many). I will also provide examples of how to improve.

If you are interested, please send me the title and genre of your manuscript and tell me you would like a gentle critique (use the contact form on my contact page). I will send you an agreement letter with payment details and a description of this service. Gentle critiques cost $15. I also offer discounts for repeat clients who want to use gentle critiques as a tutoring experience.

Note: I accept all genres for gentle critique except erotica, although I ask that any pages you send me do not contain explicit sexual violence, animal abuse or child abuse.

Do you need help bringing out the magic in your manuscript? I offer editorial services, including query critiques, first chapter critiques, three chapter critiques and full-manuscript critiques. I also offer gentle critiques for those who aren’t sure they are ready for criticism, but want a few gentle suggestions for improvement.
