The Crow's Nest: Hook Assessment

The Crow's Nest – an assessment of your novel introduction and hook

This is an abridged version of our developmental-editing service. From the heights of the crow's nest, we take a look at your first 10,000 words. Most readers need to be captivated within the first forty pages, so our goal is to help you polish your opening and sharpen your hook.

In addition to a written critique, you will receive a marked-up copy of your manuscript with comments added throughout, including scene-level feedback.

Flat rate: $400 USD ($535 CAD)

Timeline: Darling Axe editors often have multiple projects on the go. Please allow up to four weeks for us to finish your hook assessment. (Typical turnaround time is two weeks.)
