After having had several enquiries about manuscript assessments, I have decided to launch my own critique service. Simply choose your rate depending on the length of your manuscript and email to me. Once I have received your payment (Paypal or bank transfer) I will aim to respond to you within 6-8 weeks. You can also include your synopsis and covering letter for each manuscript for free! Payment is per thousand words. For a longer book, why not send the first three chapters plus synopsis and covering letter for an appraisal of your complete submission package?
My critique includes:
- Assessment of pace, plot, characters, dialogue and your author voice.
- Advice on grammar and punctuation.
- Help with presentation and layout.
- Suggestions on how to edit your work.
- Areas to work on, and most importantly, your strengths!
- Appraisal of your submission package, if applicable.
I specialise in picture books and young fiction as that’s the age group I’m published in, but I’m happy to look at any writing for children up to young adult.
Please see Critique Service page for current prices.
Plus free synopsis and cover letter critique with each manuscript!
Payment should be via paypal to lou dot treleaven at sky dot com or bank transfer (please email me for details). I look forward to hearing from you!

I would really like for you to critique my picture book. I’m so happy that you are providing this service as I have read your helpful advice before on your site so to actually get personal advice from you is amazing!
It’s 900 words so I’ll transfer £15 now with paypal.
I look forward to hearing from you
Hi Ruth, would love to look at your book. Email it through to me. Don’t forget you can send synopsis and cover letter too.
I am a great fan of your work. I am working on writing picture books and was hoping if you could critique and advice me on my work.
is it alright if I can send you 3 of my work at the same time?
Hi Naina, yes feel free to email me! Lou
