I will read your manuscript and provide a concise and straightforward critique of its strengths and weaknesses, with positive suggestions for how to improve the writing. No editing takes place at this step, it's strictly meant for a read-through of the author's work, providing direction as to where to take his/her opus or ideas next. This is a service most writers are in need of when they may be unsure of the trajectory they want their novel to take. Manuscript editing can take place with individual chapters or with your completed manuscript, it's your choice as to how much direction you feel you need or desire.
