Manuscript Evaluation


Before you can find a literary agent or publisher, it is imperative that you get a professional to give you an honest evaluation of your manuscript’s publishing potential.

I will provide preliminary evaluations of both fiction and nonfiction book-length manuscripts for $200, which covers 50 to 200 double-spaced pages. The fee is $300 for manuscripts over 200 double-spaced pages. I’ll read your manuscript and then provide a written summary of its strengths and weaknesses. Plus, I’ll give you an honest opinion in regards to the likelihood that an agent or publisher would read it. I can also offer you pointers to help improve your manuscript. If I feel that your book needs professional editing, I can do that for you, as well.
My “evaluation” is not an editing job. It is a review of your manuscript and a critique. My evaluation may consist of 2-10 pages and involve a telephone call to discuss options.

For a written evaluation, please email your manuscript to

You may send me a money order, cashier’s check or credit card to:

Donna Peerce
Heart & Soul Writing Center
4204 Hillsboro Rd., Suite 108
Nashville, TN 37215

I accept all genres including fiction, nonfiction, children, tweens and adults. I’ll complete your evaluation within one week and give you feedback.

I look forward to hearing from you! Call me at 615-279-8144 if you have questions!
