Structural Assessments

If you are not receiving the response you’re seeking from publishers, a structural analysis with one of our senior editors can be a career defining moment.

An experienced industry editor (20+ years) spends up to a week reading your manuscript, line editing a 20-page sample, and preparing an 8-12 page report identifying your manuscript’s strengths, weaknesses and directions for improvements.

These assessments provide aspiring authors with the a-ha moments that have eluded them.

Cost: up to 70,000 words $800 (add $135 for every additional 10,000 words).

Carolyn Martinez loves words and how they connect, sound, and play together to create meaning. It is a joy to watch her locate the nuggets in your manuscript and assist you to add lustre.

She is a writer who loves writers, and is a joy to engage with, while she encourages you to explore your story with a sensitivity born from having been edited, and from sharing the process with many emerging authors across her long career.

I’m not one to colour between the lines and, like a good theatrical director, Carolyn stretched, pushed against, encouraged me to write my best without cramping my style, or blunting my enthusiasm; not an easy feat. Having attempted to assist numerous graduate students with their writing, I bow to her skill.  I have worked with numerous editors and acknowledge her professionalism, wisdom and technical capability.

In addition, Hawkeye involved various experts in the process to give me confidence that any critique was not idiosyncratic and may resonate with numerous readers. I have no hesitation in recommending her.
