Critique reports for writers

Get professional support at affordable rates to help readers enjoy your book

Every writer wants their book to be read and enjoyed, but how do you know others will see it the way you intend? What makes sense to you may confuse others, and characters that come to life in your mind may appear flat on the page.

If these and other issues concern you, then it may be worth asking for a professional opinion.

An experienced editor can look at a manuscript and quickly identify what needs more attention. This expert advice can alert you to common pitfalls and help get you back on the right path.

Better for the editor to find these issues and help you fix them, than for the reader to discover them and then give up on your book. Worse, they may take to Amazon and post a highly negative review. Start attracting these and your sales will vanish.

A critique will help prevent this by providing you with an expert and constructive report. Equipped with this essential tool, you can then look again at your manuscript and improve parts where indicated.

Remember, even the best-selling authors submit their books for editing and numerous changes can be made before their title goes on sale.

Save money with Express Critique AND Express Proofreading
The beginning of your book is critical. Get it right and you’ll hook readers who’ll want to discover more. Get it wrong and they’ll simply give up and go elsewhere. This is especially true when Amazon’s free preview allows customers to have a sneak peek at the start of your book. They then decide whether to read more (and buy) or not.

Our experienced editor will read the beginning of your book to provide expert observations and help deliver an opening your readers will love. Then, ensure you really make a good first impression by also taking advantage of our Express Proofreading service.

Instead of £125 each, you pay just £175 for both. How long will it take?
Manuscripts up to 30,000 words will normally take between 2 to 3 weeks to be assessed and a report written. Larger manuscripts may take around a month.

Once we have received your manuscript, we will send you an invoice for payment. You can pay by credit/debit card, PayPal, bank transfer or cheque.

      ‘I dreaded that after embarking on the tortuous route of self-publishing Misadventures of a Zoo Keeper, I would acquire sufficient material to publish Misadventures in Self-Publishing. However, by choosing PublishNation, the anticipated long bumpy journey was a swift joy ride. David at PublishNation provided a personal service. Always on hand to advise and guide at every stage, dealing with my concerns and questions, (and more than a few alterations) patiently and professionally. The end result, is the book how I’d imagined it when writing it.’
