Manuscript Consultation

$5.00 per page

You’ve shown your magnum opus to your best friend, your mother, and your workshop or critique pals, but that may not be enough. Your critique group might know you too well. And your mom and your best friend love you. Give it to me,* and here’s what you’ll get back:

  • Fresh, honest feedback 
  • A kickoff meeting about your expectations and wishes for the MS (1 hour max)
  • Written report on everything from plot points to characterization and voice (if the manuscript warrants it)
  • A follow-up phone consultation (up to an hour) about your manuscript
  • An initial plan on how to query and where

*We can discuss varying turn-around times, but I generally work on a two-week turnaround schedule. I work with both fiction and nonfiction manuscripts.

“Yi Shun is an excellent critiquing resource! She reviewed my 120,000 word historical fiction/mystery manuscript in a very reasonable time frame. She gave thoughtful, actionable feedback, telling me not just what was working and what wasn’t working, but WHY something worked or didn’t work. She sent back in-line comments, summary comments, and we had a phone conversation. All have proven very useful as I work through a final revision. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for honest, professional feedback on their manuscript.” —Roz Ray
