Perfect your submission before sending it to a literary agent

Give your book its best chance of success.

What is a Submission Package Appraisal?

A submission package appraisal is usually done at the very final stage of your writing and editing journey. It is only necessary if you are planning to submit your manuscript to literary agents and not relevant if you are planning on self-publishing your book.

We can't guarantee you success with finding an agent from the off, but we can guarantee giving your work its best chance at success and we can help to make sure you are ahead of the game.

A submission package may seem straightforward, but it's about more than just checking you are including the right information and in the right format. It is also about making sure that what our editor sees is impressive enough to catch the attention of an agent. And that includes your first three chapters.

Our editors will go through your first three chapters (up to 12,000 words) and annotate your work providing you with close line edits (note these are not grammatical edits). This will give you a detailed picture of where the work needs to be done to give your submission package the most impact.

What is Involved?

The appraisal covers:

  • Feedback on your synopsis - with annotations
  • Feedback on your submission letter - with annotations
  • Annotated line by line feedback on your first 3 chapters up to 12,000 words
  • An overview report on general points covering the above
  • Conclusion and next steps

Price: £280. Contact Us if you would like to go ahead.
