Attention Writers and Authors: Are you unsure whether your manuscript is any

good or worth publishing?


We Can Help You Strengthen and Polish Your Story To Create

Publish Ready Manuscript That Readers Will Pay For!


Looking to independently publish for profit?

Perhaps you’re considering submitting your manuscript to traditional publishers?

Then avoid the trap so many writers and authors fall into when publishing or submitting a half-baked manuscript.

And instead…

  • Create a book that readers will be happy to buy
  • Get positive reader reviews, instead of negative ones
  • Increase your chances of acceptance by traditional publishers
  • Save time and money by not publishing an incomplete book

Did you know?

“The number one reader complaint in Amazon reviews is the blatant lack of structure, spelling and grammar errors!”

This is how manuscript assessment can help take your manuscript from uncertainty to being publish ready.

What you get from our professional manuscript assessment services:
