Critique Service

It’s getting harder to find the time to help the writers who ask me to read and comment on their manuscripts. That’s why I’m now offering a critique service. My preferred manuscripts are literary fiction, fantasy and science fiction.

Writers receive line by line comments on your digital manuscript in MS Word or Google Docs, and an overall commentary of my thoughts, including insights into your characterisation, plot, structure, world-building, setting, genre tropes, use of language and pacing.

To discuss my availability and your project needs, and to ask for a quote, please email Quotes are based on the length of the manuscript and the timeframe you require.

“Nillu’s editorial skills blew me away from the very beginning. She critiqued drafts of my first two novels, The Sowing and The Reaping, and her advice and suggestions were foundational for our revision process, particularly in the later stages of novel development. She is a talented writer and accomplished editor, and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a thorough and critical manuscript review service.” – Amira Makansi, co-author of The Seeds Trilogy, now optioned for a major motion picture.

“Nillu’s talent for drilling into the heart of a manuscript and pulling apart its tangled threads is astounding. She not only helps sort through the issues, but she does it in a way that leaves you more confident about your book. Nillu’s critiques should definitely be in everyone’s toolkit when it comes to repairing their novel.” – Meg Collett, author of The Fear University series.
