Manuscript Evaluation

What can you expect from a manuscript evaluation by Five Star Publications, Inc.?

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?

After carefully reading your manuscript, we will provide you with a written evaluation that will point out areas of strengths and weaknesses, and will offer some specific suggestions for needed improvement including any potential "roadblocks" that we feel may hinder the reader's understanding of, and appreciation for, your material. (Be prepared. With some manuscripts, our recommendations may include the need for extensive rewriting in order for it to achieve its full potential!)

Some questions addressed in the evaluation include:
  • Is the title immediately engaging?
  • What are the strengths and weaknesses of the story's development?
  • Was the dialogue realistic, convincing, and interesting, or was it forced, boring, and/or didactic?
Take the next step to ensuring your manuscript is the best that it can be. We promise to be candid, yet diplomatically honest, while offering constructive feedback in our evaluation.

"I am continually grateful to my longtime friend, Winn Bundy, who said to Susan (Krueger) and me, "Oh, you've got to take your manuscript to Linda Radke at Five Star Publications! She's the best!" Thank you, Linda, for being a fantastic publisher and publicist!"
—Reba Well Grandrud, Co-Author, Historian Addie Slaughter: The Girl Who Met Geronimo

"Five Star Publications' 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."
—Marlane Miller, Global Consultant, Executive Coach, Master Trainer, and Author of BrainStyles: Change Your Life WITHOUT Changing Who You Are (Simon & Schuster)
