This editorial service afford writers the opportunity to have an early draft of their book assessed by an editor, who will offer advice on style and guidance on how to move forward.
It's almost unheard of for an opening draft to be considered the finished article, and our First Draft Review editorial service has been designed to offer the writer guidance before preparing to do further work on their manuscript.

Please note that we cannot accept submissions which do not comply with our criteria. You must ensure that you have filled in the Writers' Form, submitted a synopsis of 1-2 pages and a sample chapter. If you supply more than 32,000 words, we will still only be able to review the first 32,000.
