ITEM: Detailed critique of your novel’s first 10,000 words and synopsis from freelance editor/publishing consultant Donna Hillyer
DETAILS: I am offering a detailed critique of the first 10,000 words of your commercial adult novel and synopsis, and will cover the story itself (does it work/are there areas that can be improved?) and also the commercial viability of your novel, and whether anything can change to enhance its overall appeal.
BIO: I’m a publishing consultant and editor, who, before going freelance in 2015, worked in corporate publishing in London for 12 years. During my career, I’ve worked for a number of major UK trade publishers, across all levels, to company director/board member. In 2012, I was one of four people shortlisted for the 2012 Kim Scott Walwyn Prize, the UK award recognising women’s outstanding potential and previous achievements in their publishing careers. I now work in various capacities, as a freelance publishing consultant and editor, with publishing companies, literary agents, private authors and writers’/literary festivals.
