Project details

Let's turn your children's book manuscript into a polished story ready for querying!

You only have ONE chance to wow a literary agent or publisher with your story. I will help you make it the best it can be!

I will spend 4-5 hours on your manuscript and provide an assessment on:
- Your story's hook, concept, and narrative arc
- Relatability and marketability
- Illustration potential
- Setting and story structure
- Character development and plot
- Word count and readability
- Pacing and page turns
- Language devices, voice, and POV
- Line and developmental edits

Why should you hire me? I am an experienced picture book writer with two books coming out this year. HONOR FLIGHT (Benchmark Edu., May 2022) and DEAR RAINBOW BABY (August 22, 2022, Clear Fork). I have been a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) since 2019, and participate in several critique groups. I have critiqued dozens of manuscripts like yours!

Let's get started.
