Description

** Manuscript Evaluation ($20/hr); Minimum $200 deposit **

The hardest step of the writing process is sharing your work with others. The fear of judgment and rejection is real, but with the right kind of support and constructive feedback, any writer can feel more at ease. ANO provides passionate, encouraging, and laser-focused feedback to check your work for clarity, consistency, and correctness with actionable feedback whether you are in the midst of the creative process or on the verge of publication.

ANO works with writers to develop payment plans as needed. Writers may also choose to submit a portion of their manuscript to start (first few chapters) to get a feel for Amanda’s editorial style and feedback before moving forward. Payment plans and pricing will vary per genre & length of manuscripts.

If users of these services want further feedback on pages that have been revised and edited based on ANO’s previously provided feedback, additional charges will be applied using the same criteria for the initial submission unless otherwise agreed upon. The writer decides how much of their original manuscript is resubmitted for further evaluation, revision, editing, or proofreading.
