You might be reading this and wondering what's the catch? There is none! I am currently offering FREE assessments and appraisals to help authors better understand the areas that they need to work on. Obviously, I hope that having done so you will (eventually) go on to use some of my services but you are under absolutely NO obligation to do so. There is nothing stopping you from taking your assessment and running for the hills!
While I will ALWAYS be constructive in any feedback that I give, I will also be honest (and anyone requesting an assessment should be prepared for that). My assessments will cover areas such as:
* Credibility of the plot and subplots * Characterisation * Use of tense * Viewpoint (POV)
I will also provide you with an (honest) indication as to whether I feel that you would benefit from a proofread or an edit. (If I feel that you need an edit, I will give you some examples as to why). What you do with this advice is entirely up to you.
A manuscript assessment is NOT the same as a book review. This is strictly confidential and will NOT be published anywhere. This is perfect for the following groups of people:
* Authors who have finished at least one draft of their book but have not yet published * Authors who have self-published but have found themselves receiving negative reviews
I cannot guarantee to assess every manuscript that I receive a request for. However, I do guarantee to reply to your request at which point I will either give you a timescale for the assessment or inform you that I am unable to assess. (The only reason that I won't undertake an assessment will be time constraints and other commitments).
"I highly recommend Ingrid's blurb writing service. Like many authors I lack the clarity of thought and distance from my work to do justice to the task. Ingrid took the pain away and approached the subject in a way I would never have dreamed of and captured the essence of my books beautifully. Her turnaround was quicker than expected and her charges reasonable."
