Based on more than 30 years experience as a published author, fifteen of those as a tutor, I offer a detailed manuscript appraisal service by email attachment. Children's fiction only. 

This will include notes and comments within the text as well as a detailed feedback report on:

I will also proof-read and copy-edit your work (I'm trained and experienced in this). Most agencies charge separately for this service.
