Manuscript Review

Have you finished a draft of your book but don’t know what to do next? Or maybe you know the book needs work but you’re not sure what exactly to work it needs?

Are you interested in getting some overall feedback on your draft without diving into the nitty-gritty – and the expense – of a full edit?

Then, a manuscript review may be just what you’re seeking.

Andi Cumbo-Floyd
In a manuscript review, I will read your entire book and then offer feedback about the strengths and potential places for improvement in your work. I’ll consider things such as:

  • point of view
  • pacing
  • structure
  • setting
  • thematic elements
  • character development
  • introduction and conclusion
  • sentence structure and grammar

I offer manuscript reviews for fiction and creative nonfiction (memoir, essay, etc.) books.

As part of the review process, you will receive

Two-three pages of type-written feedback from me.

Unlimited email access to me for a month after you receive your feedback so that we can discuss your book further.

One-hour phone call or Skype session to discuss the feedback.

Getting Started

I work in Word using the Track Changes function for manuscripts so that you, as the writer, have the discretion to accept or reject any edits and so that my comments are easy to read and associate with your manuscript.

My passion is to help you shape YOUR manuscript into the book that YOU want it to be. I will use my skills, my training, and my deep passion for the written to help your words be the best they can be. I love the honor of doing that work with writers.
