We offer a manuscript evaluation service for fiction and nonfiction, and we welcome the opportunity to read and evaluate your work. We will provide a detailed critique in a written response, discussing narrative style, characterization, plot, dialogue, and in the case of nonfiction, overall development, organization, and support of your topic. We identify the strengths of your work as well as aspects which need attention. In addition we put general notes on the manuscript and return the annotated file to you. Third, we look at the viability of your work in the current marketplace. Finally, we make suggestions for your next best steps in moving forward with the project. Our evaluation will be completed within two weeks.

The first step is for you to send up to 10,000 words of the manuscript as a Word document to evaluations@namelos.com. In your cover letter, tell us something about yourself and your writing. We charge $400 for this evaluation, and will invoice you through PayPal. We look forward to hearing from you!
