*Please be sure to read all the information below before contacting.
First Chapter Critique- $50
This first chapter will determine what agents, editors, and readers think of your story. Elements such as dialogue, characters, setting, pacing, etc. will be covered in an editorial letter on how and what can be improved, as well as what is already working well in your story.
Fifty Pages Critique- $100
Whether it is pitching to an agent or after getting an accepted query letter, the first (up to) fifty pages of your book will more than likely be requested. Feedback and any suggestions or concerns about plot, characterization, pacing, and more will be included in an editorial letter. Please contact if you prefer a smaller portion critiqued.
Manuscript Critique- $10 per 1,000 words
For this service, your entire manuscript will be read, and you will receive a detailed editorial letter revolving around different categories: plot, characters, setting, dialogue, pacing, etc. Please state in your message the total word count of the manuscript. This service does not include an annotated copy of your manuscript.
Developmental Editing- $15 per 1,000 words
This is the same service as the Manuscript Critique, except the Developmental Editing will include in-doc notes. Alongside the editorial letter, you will receive in-doc notes focusing on advice, suggestions, and any smaller scale issues within the manuscript, as well as highlighting points made in the editorial letter. Please state in your message the total word count in the manuscript.
Sensitivity Reading- $5 per 1,000 words
It is important to have a sensitivity reader to avoid unintentional stereotypes, bias themes, or misinterpretations, especially if you do not personally identify with them or have experienced them. This service is for LGBTQ+, mental health, and chronic illness representation.
Website Design- $500 - $1,000
One way to promote and advertise your work is through a website. If you are confused as to where to start, this service will assist in getting you and your work out there for all to see. This service includes website setup, design and building, content added, and training so you can take over once the design is finished. If you already have a website built but are having problems or need further assistance, please contact so we can discuss a solution.
In these offered programs, you will get one-on-one support as you write, revise, and polish your manuscript. *Due to the vastness of these programs, you will be scheduled at a specific start date that works for both you and Michelle to accommodate the timeline of the program(s).
