IT’S AN “IN LIKE A LION, OUT LIKE A LAMB” CRITIQUE SPECIAL!
For the entire month of March, I’m offering a free “Second Look” with any PGWRites Picture Book Critique! That’s right…it’s a free second look for no additional charge (a $25.00 value). Just follow the payment and submission instructions below, and when you’ve revised your manuscript after your initial critique, I’ll take a second look for free!
Writing a picture book that works takes time and dedication. At whatever stage you find your manuscript- draft, revision, rewrite- a fresh pair of eyes and a new perspective can help take your story to the next level.
A PGWRites picture book critique includes:
- Line-by-line markup of your manuscript with edits and suggestions. (Using track changes)
- A one-page written critique with a detailed explanation of the manuscript mark-up.
- A list of the strengths/weaknesses of the manuscript from my perspective, as well as a list of guided questions to help with the revision process.
- Answers to your questions about the critique in one follow-up email.
- A follow-up critique based on my suggestions is available for $25.00.
I’m a freelance writer, editor and children’s book author with over 25 years experience in publishing. I’m also a veteran English/Language Arts instructor with 10-years experience teaching creative writing and journalism.
Picture Book Critique Service $50.00
Follow-Up Critique $25.00
Once payment is made, submit your picture book manuscript of 1000 words or less to email@example.com with PGWRITES CRITIQUE SERVICE SUBMISSION in the subject line. Please copy and paste your MS into the body of an email (no attachments please).
“I would highly recommend Patti Richards. For years, we have critiqued together. Her insights are keen. Patti helps me push to the “next level” of storytelling. Without her expert help, I know I wouldn’t have sold a book or found an agent. However, what I admire most about her is that she is respectful and kind. Even if the draft needs a TON work, she motivates others to keep trying and revise. Patti is a writer who always lifts other writers up. I think I would have quit long ago if I didn’t have her by my side cheering me on.”–Lisa Rose, Author of SHMULIK PAINTS THE TOWN (Kar-Ben Publishing, January 2016), OH NO!

“Patti’s critique service is a wonderful new way for picture book author’s to get new insight into their work. And what a value! Not only does she provide a very detailed letter with many helpful suggestions and questions to jump start your story, but she also provides line by line edits and suggestions right in the manuscript. I definitely recommend Patti for your critiquing needs!” Jennifer Rumberger, Author of DUCKLINGS ON THE MOVE! (MeeGenius/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)
