Six easy steps to arrange a manuscript assessment

  1. You tell me your word count, identify your genre and how well read you are in this genre. Email to me your first chapter, a one-page synopsis or project outline and a short bio, in confidence.
    Email Sue Reidy

  2. I quickly evaluate this information and if your project is suitable and I think I can help you I’ll give you a quote for a manuscript assessment.

  3. Once you’ve accepted my quote for assessing your manuscript I'll send you an invoice for payment in full in advance.                                                                    

  4. Post or courier your manuscript to me if you are based in New Zealand. Please also email a soft copy of the MS to me. For international clients who are sending me a soft copy only I charge an additional fee for printing out the manuscript.
    Instructions for formatting and dispatch

  5. I confirm when I’ve received your manuscript and provide an estimated delivery time for my assessment.

  6. You receive a detailed written report via email.

  7. You are clearer about what you need to do next with your manuscript to bring it closer to publication standard.

"Excellent, Ten out of ten for your report. I wasn't surprised by any of your critiques and recommendations. They were first-class. It took three readings of the report to absorb all of your advice. I'm sure that I can now work through any shortcomings and will act on your recommendations."

"Having Sue assess my manuscript provided excellent feedback and will add real value to my book. Her written report allowed me to think through the book from a high level to sharpen its focus and style, enhancing it as a publishing proposition. Her detailed annotations on the manuscript itself were also very helpful when redeveloping sections. The options provided for publication helped to demystify what the next steps could be."
