developmental analysis

Marketability assessment, novels from short stories, repurpose content

This analysis examines the structural and 
storytelling elements of fiction and memoirs. When the work is nonfiction, the structural and writing elements of that category are considered. The write-up includes recommendations for adjustments and runs between 8 and 15 single-spaced pages. This is all narrative text; no tables, charts or graphs are used. The rate for manuscripts up to 30,000 words is $1,750. The rate for manuscripts up to 87,500 words is $2,500. 

"This truly is the book of my dreams! As excited as I am about the movie producers who are interested in the film rights, I am more thrilled with the sense of peace now that I have accomplished this goal. Together we've made this a reality." 

"I queried close to 100 agents and no one requested the novel. Within three days of finishing the changes Writer's Resource recommended, two agents requested the full manuscript!  
It's clear that the feedback was right on the money. The recommendations really resonated with me, and the story is much stronger."
