Travel Book Manuscript Critique

Update – I’m not taking on new clients at the moment. Please join my Genius Loci newsletter to get notified when I’m available again.

Do you have a solid draft of a travel book or memoir? Get detailed, substantive feedback on your completed manuscript.

Don’t have a draft manuscript yet? Consider my travel book concept critique.

How it works

  • Send me an email ([email protected]) with the following information:
    • Your first and last name
    • Your manuscript draft in MS Word format
    • A full description of your travel book idea
    • Your background as a writer
    • What major doubts, concerns, or sticking-points you have or envision
    • What main questions you have
  • I’ll send you an invoice and a contract with a due date if I think I can help with your manuscript
  • After you pay, I’ll begin working and complete the project by the due date (noted on the invoice)
  • We will schedule a time to talk via Skype or Zoom about your project for one hour

What you get

  • A substantive edit (sometimes called a developmental edit) using the track changes feature in MS Word
    • I’ll focus on the big picture: organization, structure, pacing, voice, story, clarity, depth, etc.
  • A 1-page or more critique or assessment of your project 
  • A 1-hour post-review meeting via Skype or Zoom
  • A clear plan for improvement

What you won’t get

  • An evaluation of the market worthiness of your manuscript
  • Proofreading, copy editing, or a line edit (though, I may mark issues as I see them)
