First Draft-Story Consultant


First five pages are FREE!

So, you've written the first draft of your novel and are looking for feedback from someone other than your partner or friends.


Often inviting a new and objective pair of eyes in the early stages can help identify where alternate choices could be considered in order to tighten, tweak, or even radically change a story.  

However, for most writers first drafts are not the time to invest in commissioning a professional edit, or even a manuscript assessment. 

Instead, why not consider whistling up a Story Consultant, like Jack.

Jack will provide you with feedback on your novel, the characters who populate it and suggestions on alternative ways you might think about presenting it at a fraction of the cost.

Jack has assisted both novice and experienced writers with their first and second drafts (testimonials will be provided on the initial enquiry). 

If you think your first draft could benefit why not drop Jack a line on the link below?He'll invite you to send the first five pages (double spaced) of your work. Feedback will be provided on the sample at no charge. 

Then, if you are both satisfied that you could work together then a very reasonable quote will be provided.

Please note Jack is not an editor, nor does he profess to be. If you require a professional editor, either structural or copy, he'd be happy to provide some referrals of professionals who have done great work for him.
