We’ve been offering critiques for some time now . . . and clients have been excited about Picturethe help they have received.

How about you? Could you benefit from a professional critique of your manuscript? It’s an extra fee . . . but one that could save you money in the long run and help you bring your manuscript to the next level.

Perhaps you have completed your first draft . . . but you don’t know where to go from here. Maybe you are stuck part way through writing your book. Or perhaps you need some professional guidance before you pay for editing or send your work to an agent or publisher. A critique can help you!

The CES editors on our critiquing team thrive on helping authors excel.
