What can you expect from a manuscript evaluation by Five Star Publications? First and foremost, you can expect candor. If you're like most writers, you've shared your manuscript with those closest to you. And if they're like most family members and close friends, they've probably told you that you have a bestseller on your hands. Maybe you do, but don't you think you need an unbiased professional opinion before proceeding?
When we receive your manuscript, we will assign it to an editor who has the most knowledge and experience in the area about which you are writing. This person will carefully read your manuscript; in essence, taking it out on a test drive. We will then report back to you on any problems we encounter, with particular attention being paid to any "roadblocks" that we feel will hinder the reader's understanding of, and appreciation for, your material.
One of our clients had this to say about having her manuscript evaluated:
"Five Star Publications's stable of resources is impressive. My manuscript was drafted, yet I had no idea how it would be reviewed by an agent or publisher. Linda Radke found editors that gave me two distinct and valuable perspectives that are allowing me to rewrite with confidence. This type of help is very hard to come by, and is very, very helpful."

How long does all this take? Within six weeks of receiving your manuscript, we will provide you with a written evaluation that will point out its areas of strengths and weaknesses, and will offer some specific suggestions for needed improvement. (Be prepared. With some manuscripts, our recommendations may include the need for extensive rewriting in order for it to achieve its full potential!)
The evaluation fee depends on the number of pages in your manuscript. The evaluation fee, however, does not include the fee to make any editorial changes. You are welcome to attempt the alterations on your own or, if you prefer, we can bid any of the work that we are suggesting.
Take the next step to making sure your manuscript is the best that it can be. We promise to be candid and constructive in our evaluation.
