Manuscript Assessment

& Appraisal

Books on the Desk

In-Scribe offers a leading manuscript assessment and appraisal advice service that provides expert, market-aware appraisal and advice to writers at all levels.

We would love to help you with your manuscript, prior to you sending it to a Literary Agent / Publishing House – or self-publishing.

We’ll help you with plot direction, characterisation and even aid you in choosing a book title too.

We give writers and authors an honest, detailed and professional manuscript appraisal, helping them to understand what they need to do, in order to give their manuscript a winning chance.

Our success rate is very high, one of our clients got signed by a leading London Literary Agent within three weeks of our assessment and copy-edit!

Whatever you are working on or have finished the first drafts of, we would love to give you guidance and support.


An assessment will also provide practical guidelines for self-editing (we can copy-edit for you as well, and will reduce the cost of services, if bought at the same time).

Our in-depth appraisals and assessments include annotations made directly onto the Word.doc (copy) of your manuscript – as well as our written (emailed) Report. The annotated manuscript gets right to the heart of the matter and enables you to work on your manuscript in a very fluid and cohesive way.

Our developmental advice will help you with your narrative elements, showing you what you’re doing well, what’s working less well and why, and how to get your manuscript into the best possible shape.
