Amy Martin | 23 comments If you're an author in need of a manuscript critique, I'd love to help. Not only have I written and published my own books, but I also hold a Ph.D. in English Studies and have over twenty years’ experience in higher education as a teacher and advisor. I am ready to use my experience to help you with your writing and editing needs.

http://www.theamymartin.com/writing-e...

Examples of issues I might address in a manuscript critique:

Plot holes or scenes that don’t make sense
Realistic or believable characters and/or situations
Pacing
Setting
Dialogue
Repeated errors in grammar/spelling/punctuation/usage (While proofreading is another type of editing and not part of manuscript critique, we can discuss proofreading your manuscript for a separate fee.)

I will offer feedback in these areas and suggestions on how to improve in a comprehensive report. I’ll also let you know what you’re doing well in your writing so you can keep on doing it!

Genres:

I’m well-read in most genres, but I prefer:

Young Adult (I’m a YA writer myself)
Romance
New Adult
Non-fiction

I also offer the following additional services:

book blurbs (both writing of original blurbs and editing of existing ones)
resume/cover letter assistance
assistance with college application essays and graduate/professional school statements of purpose

I'd love to help you with your writing and editing needs. Please visit my website for more information about my experience and rates.

Amy Martin | 23 comments Thanks, Everly!

I just completed a manuscript critique on a middle grade book, so I've added that to my list of genres/categories. I also now have some testimonials on my site as well. I look forward to working with members of the group!
