Amazing! The advice and professional insight Ms. McCutcheon offered in the critique of my manuscript has helped more than the dozens of How-to books Ive pored over. She has enabled me to concentrate on areas in my writing that I was too close to see. By utilizing her suggestions and hints, my current projects are much tighter and more focused. Its like absorbing all of the information offered at a writers conference in a brief format. Worth every cent. J.B., published romance author
"Thank you so much for a thorough (yet kind!) critique of my manuscript. Believe me, I am grateful for every mark, every comment, and all the very helpful extra material. I feel GOOD about the things you said about the ms. and I am so glad that you found the fatal flaw lurking in the background that I missed completely. D.C.
Pams help on my synopsis and book gave me the confidence I needed to send it out and because of her imput Ive received good feedback and placed in a contest. J. Willhoff

|Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How do
I submit to you?
A:Submit your manuscript and/or synopsis in the proper format, meaning it should be typewritten, double-spaced, single-sided, with one inch margins and typed in 12pt Courier (or a similar non-proportional spaced font) type. Also include your name, return address, the genre and target market for your manuscript, and a check or money order for the full amount. Please allow four to six weeks for delivery. Q: Why cant I send you my manuscript in e-mail?
A: Because most publishers and literary agents will only accept hard copies and, in order to evaluate your submission properly, I need to see it in the same form they will. And I never know if there's a virus in that innocent-looking attachment.... Q: Why won't you critique my entire manuscript?
A: Because it wastes my time and your money. I've found that the mistakes made in a partial are echoed throughout the rest of the manuscript and you can correct the remainder yourself without needing me to point it out to you. Q: What are your qualifications?
A: I am a published author with ten novels, two novellas, four short stories, and two non-fiction how-to writing books in publication. I speak on writing subjects across the country, have judged/critiqued in numerous writing contests across all genres from local to regional to national contests, coordinated four writing contests, and provided editing services to a small press. The feedback I receive from contest entrants, students, and those who have used my service is consistently positive, praising my thoroughness and professionalism.
