Same as proofreading, but I will also point out any plot holes, use of wrong place or character names, anything else which doesn’t seem right or stops the story from flowing, etc. £10 per 1000 words.

Writing Critique

Price: 5.00 GBP
As a Creative Writing MA student, I provided constructive criticism to other students as part of my learning. This proved invaluable. Outside of studying, publications rarely give feedback to explain their reasons for rejections. Some places charge for this, asking for much more than I am charging here. I will critique 1000 words of your writing for £5. If you have a longer word count, simply purchase one critique per 1000 words. Longer pieces will take longer to critique.

Lost and Found: Part 1 (signed copy)

Imagine finding out your parents weren't your parents; that they bought you on the black market and lied to you for fifteen years. This is what Kayla Marshall has to deal with after she is reunited with her real family. She struggles to find where she belongs. Is it with the couple she grew up with and called Mum and Dad? Or is it her genetic family who she grew up thinking were a figment of her over-active imagination?
