Getting a critique greatly improves your chances of having your short story/novel published. Sometimes an appraisal can mean the difference between a novel standing tall or falling flat on its face. An external, unbiased reviewer can notice a flaw in your book that you or a friend may have overlooked. I will look over an author’s manuscript and highlight the strong points and weaknesses (if any) in the novel/short story. In every manuscript, there are five aspects that I will focus on:

1. Plot
2. Characters
3. Dialogue
4. Pacing
5. Setting

I will go into detail in each of the aspects listed above and highlight in the manuscript and my report room for improvement in each area.

DISCLAIMER: Please note, however, a critique, while improving your chances of publishing success, cannot guarantee that your novel/short story will be published or win competitions. This decision rests solely with the editor at the publishing house or magazine.

See the table below for a full list of my prices.

Payments can be made via Paypal or postal orders. Customers outside of Ireland can send money orders if they wish. If you’d like to pay by Postal Order/Money Order, please contact me at: thelucidcritique@gmail.com for payment details. Alternatively, if you’d like to pay by Paypal, please send all payments to the email address already given.

Once payment is received, I’ll endeavour to have your manuscript along with my report returned to you as soon as possible.

Sure! Availing of a critique is quite simple. For a free sample appraisal, just send on the first chapter or first 4,000 words of your manuscript or novella.
