The First 50 Pages Review



The initial pages of your manuscript can make or break securing a deal with a publisher, as well as gaining your readers' attention. But how do you know if you are on the right track with what you have written so far? This is where my First 50 Pages Review package comes in handy. 


Whether you are writing fiction or nonfiction, this package is a great option for you if you:

  • Have written a substantial amount of content but aren't quite sure if the story is moving properly; has a pace, hook, and storyline to hold a reader or agent's attention; or need a confidence boost that, with some content-related advice and direction, you are on the right track and should continue. 

  • Have already finished your manuscript (or most of it), are ready to pitch to agents or publishers, and want to make sure your first 50 pages will grab the reader's attention immediately and keep them interested. 

  • Are aware your manuscript isn't as strong as it needs to be but you aren't sure what content can be changed, edited, reworked, or relocated. 


  • Thorough review of your first 50 pages.

  • Inline or margin comments, plus an editorial letter with suggested edits and/or structural and content changes.

  • Feedback provided to you during a 45 min Zoom or phone call where we will also discuss recommendations for moving forward with your manuscript.

Please note: Your first 50 pages must be formatted with 12pt Times New Roman or Georgia font, double-spaced. Depending on my schedule, I typically need between 2 - 3 weeks to review your manuscript before our Zoom or phone call.
