Erin Healy is an editor who specializes in helping novelists and narrative nonfiction authors achieve their tales’ greatest emotional impact with superior storytelling craft. She has more than 25 years’ experience editing and has written ten novels of her own. Erin offers the following four levels of manuscript review services:

1. Manuscript Viability Review ($350). Erin will review the first 10,000 words of your manuscript and up to 3,000 words of summary materials (such as a synopsis) and provide a 3-4 page written critique assessing a novel’s viability in the intended marketplace and whether the viability can be improved. The review will identify the story’s major strengths and weaknesses and offer broad brushstroke suggestions for improvement. This review includes a one-hour phone consult.

2. Limited Manuscript Review ($550 for ms up to 100K words). A written critique that assesses the manuscript’s major weaknesses and suggests creative solutions that honor the author’s vision for the book. The review includes a phone consultation.

3. Full Manuscript Review ($1250 for ms up to 100K words). A written critique as described in #2, expanded to assess lesser story weaknesses. The review will include more specific and in-depth suggestions for content development, and an annotated (not edited) manuscript, with comments embedded. The review includes a phone consultation.

4. Full Manuscript Review and Coaching ($1750 for ms up to 100K words). This option includes the services described in #3 above plus my availability to the author to seek guidance (via phone and e-mail) as he/she revises the manuscript to his/her satisfaction for six months following the delivery of the review.
