Submission Form

Check List For Submission

  • Pen a cover letter and tell me a little about yourself. What is your age? What is your favorite genre to read? What is your favorite genre to write in? How many books have you written? This cover letter will be included into a single document with your submission, and all should be double-spaced. This applies to the chapter-by-chapter outline, as well.
  • Use Times New Roman 12-point font.
  • Margins should be one inch all around.
  • Remove all automatic paragraph spacing so that there are no spaces between paragraphs.
  • Use the Header feature to put your last name and book title in the upper left corner of every page. Insert page numbers in the upper right corner.
  • Files must be in Word (.doc or .docx) format only.
  • Make sure to send a title page (title and author name) along with the manuscript. Do NOT include acknowledgments, copyright page, dedication page, note from author, bibliography, or any other additional pages of material. However, you may like to have your Foreword, Introduction, or Afterword critiqued. If so, please include them.
  • All chapters should begin at the top of the page, with no spacing. (You don’t want to pay full price for all that space.)
  • Put your cover letter, manuscript, and chapter-by-chapter outline (when applicable) all in one double-spaced document.
  • But wait! Before you press that Send button, have you done your absolute best at providing the last-best-effort copy of your submission? If the answer is yes, send away, and welcome to a whole new level of writing.


  • (If applicable)
  • Premier Critique: (Submit 30 double-spaced pages-up to 10,000 words. Please include a chapter-by-chapter outline.) $250

    First Ten Pages: (Submit 10 double-spaced pages—up to 3,500 words.) $75

    Complete Manuscript Critique: (Contact Me to arrange this service as I must evaluate a sample of your manuscript before accepting the job.)

    Choose Your Page Numbers: $7.00 per double-spaced page (345-350 words)—minimum of 20 pages. (This option does not give me the opportunity to evaluate your overall plotline, as this service does not include a look at your chapter-by-chapter outline. But if you want to have me spot coach you periodically, this may be an option for you.)

    The services listed above include two follow-up emails (from you). Use them wisely, take your time in penning your questions to me, and remember that you have a seven day window to ask questions. That means seven days from the time I zip the critique off to you. When you get my report, take a look at the critique and begin assessing it to determine if you need a bit of clarity on a few points. These listed prices do not include a critique on your rewrite, so do not rewrite your submission and send it to me for another assessment. That is not what I mean by two follow-up emails. If you want another critique on what you have done, you will have to purchase a whole separate service again, as I will be spending the same amount of time, if not more time, evaluating the manuscript again. Your two follow-up emails are to provide clarity only regarding what I have written in the report I submit to you, and they are not to be used to garner a new critique of anything you rewrite.

    Sample Rewrite: $175 (First 2,000 words of your manuscript.) If you want a taste of what a rewrite will look like, you can select this sample option and have the first 2,000 words of your manuscript rewritten. (This does not include critiquing or tutoring you as to why I am making the changes I am making. If you want more of a tutoring session in writing, please choose the Premier Critique Service or Complete Manuscript Critique. Nor does this service include copy-editing. For that, you will need a proofreading service.)

  • (All submissions must be in a Word .doc or .docx file, and double-spaced. Please include your cover letter, manuscript, and chapter-by-chapter outline in one file.)
  • Terms

    In submitting a manuscript and making your payment, you are asserting that you have read and agreed to all the Terms of Service. (See Terms)
