Manuscript Evaluation

We offer an honest, objective reading based on many years' experience in the book trade.

We'll tell you what works and what doesn't.

Sometimes, a few minor changes can open markets you hadn't considered.

Our editors will read your manuscript carefully and comment objectively on its style, content, and marketability in a multi-page report.

Our fees: $250 for manuscripts under 100,000 words, $350 for manuscripts over 100,000 words. Please allow 4–6 weeks for your report. No electronic submission.

If you're interested, please send your manuscript and fee to our senior editor at:

Cypress House
155 Cypress Street
Fort Bragg, CA 95437

"The two pieces you critiqued were excellent. I had no idea how a few words and their arrangement could totally change the impact."

- Bob Kirkpatrick, Willits, Calif.

"Your marketing and promotion thoughts are good, hard ones, and deserving of my thought. I am delighted to have such a comprehensive critique of my book and look forward to talking about it, then making decisions about its production."

- Robert F. Cooper, author, Serenade to the Blue Lady

"I will always remember the courtesy and support that you've shown me. In a time when honesty and honor are in very short supply, your integrity and exemplary conduct are more than welcome."

- Steven Ford, Las Vegas, Nev.

"My evaluated manuscript arrived yesterday afternoon, and I want to thank you for your words of advice. All along I have thought there was something wrong, and somehow couldn't get the ducks to line up, but you have clarified my thinking to the extent that I now feel I can sort and cut and present a manuscript worthy of publication. It will take time and patience, but I trust my inner lights to provide the right mix."

- Tro Harper, Santa Rosa, CA

"I received the analysis. It was superb. I can not think of a better way I could have invested my money. You not only pointed out the weak parts of my manuscript in a nice, authoritative way, yu also gave me ideas and solutions to improve my writing. Your analysis is truly complete. Your competitive advantage is that you inspire people; you do not let them down. Thank you a million times!"

- Danilo Lopez, Miami, Fla.
