Manuscript Critiques by Carol

What Every Story Needs

The single biggest reason why children’s book authors fail to land a publishing contract or self-publish a book that does not sell is this:

They try to publish too soon.

I think almost every single person who writes children’s books is guilty of this at least one time. But this mistake can be fatal to the success of your book.

So how can you avoid this terrible fate?

By getting meaningful feedback on you story.

Whip your story into publishable shape

I have traditionally published dozens of picture books, chapter books, and educational books–and I want to help you achieve the same. I am asked over and over again by authors who have completed a draft of their story: what’s next?

My answer is always the same: Have you gotten feedback on it yet?

If you are looking for an early critique, I recommend you check out my suggestions for getting a free or low-cost critique. You can find that information on my post How to Get Your Children’s Book Critiqued Without Breaking the Bank.

If you are ready to level up to a professional critique, and want my help, let’s talk. 

I offer critiques of your picture book manuscript (up to 1,000 words) or first 5 pages of your Chapter Book (up to 2,000 words).

  • $50 for initial critique
  • $29 for a follow up critique

I’ll provide a summary of my feedback as well as in-line edits and suggestions to your manuscript.

I honestly want to help you succeed on your journey to becoming a published children’s book author. And you don’t have to do it all on your own. Believe me, if I can make it happen, so can you!
