What I offer is a full PICTURE BOOK CRITIQUE. A picture book is generally under 1000 words and aimed at young children (2-5yrs). A longer book aimed at older children is more often called an illustrated storybook. Please message me separately if you wish to discuss a longer book. Rather than a proof-reader (who checks text for errors) I am a developmental / content editor. I look at things like structure, pacing, plot, tone, character development, target audience suitability etc. within your writing. Basically, I act as a mentor / teacher to authors who want to develop their storytelling skills. WHAT DO YOU GET? You submit your entire manuscript, with or without illustrations, and I will provide a DEVELOPMENTAL EDIT (a report of at least 4 pages) that discusses your story's strengths and weaknesses in depth. And also a LINE EDIT where I make direct comments on the text / manuscript, looking at the style of your prose. This level of critique will not only develop your current book but also improve your ability to write in general. I offer honest, practical and useful advice on how to make your book and your writing as professional as possible. A lot of people think they can write for children but there's a lot more to it than most realise. I'm here to give you realistic advice and professional guidance. Fiction is naturally a subjective business and I don't pretend to know everything or that following my advice will get you MEGA SALES, but not everyone has people around them who have the necessary skills to help them move on with their writing. I do have those skills and can share with you what I know. 100% happy clients agree. I am also nice and friendly to deal with :-) Kelley
