Manuscript Consultation and Author Mentoring
Thousands want to write and publish, and many set out to succeed without instruction or a clue. Congratulations on having common sense enough to seek a mentor upon entering a huge and complicated industry.
BookEval will read and edit your manuscript in support of your ambitions. BookEval knows the myths and the rules and can steer you around traps such as paying somebody an insane $8,000 to print your book. Best of all, BookEval works. In 2010, five of Catherine's clients, all first-time authors, had books bought and published—sans agents. In 2011, clients published three novels, two nonfiction books, a memoir, poetry and a children's book. BookEval.com can assure self-published authors that their manuscripts are flawless before printing or uploading, and that they haven't signed away their copyrights or film rights. Find clients' comments here. Get tons of free advice at BookEval's Sanity Bubble blog.
Shifts in the publishing business give today's writers great new powers and responsibilities. Technologies and tastes change nearly every day. Using BookEval's services saves you a slow painful crawl up a long learning curve and years of effort toward making your ideal into a reality.
