You’re 100% right for asking whether your book is good enough! Knowing whether your manuscript is ready for prime time is an important thing to be certain of. There would be nothing more embarrassing than to be the laughing stock of your town or field. More reputations have been ruined by people who have published books of little value.

Friends and family will either be all too kind or unsupportive of your book. (Time to get new friends.)

You, of course, think it’s great. After all, you wrote it as best as ever possible.

Your intentions are true; you want to bring the best information to others and create positive effects. But just because you like it doesn’t mean others will see any need for its existence.

Without question, having certainty of whether your book is ready for publishing is paramount. Knowing the good, the bad and the ugly about your book lets you leave the strong points alone and fix the less-than-desirable areas of your book.

Knowing about your manuscript’s condition is vital! It is empowering, to say the least.

So, how can you know for sure whether your book is something others would want to buy and read? And here’s the perfect answer . . .

Getting A Professional Book Critique

Most aspiring-author clients, if they’ve already written their manuscripts, first request a Book Critique in order to clarify the condition of their written work.

A Book Critique is a quick and inexpensive process that gives you the knowledge you need about your book.

You can have as many critiques as you desire. In other words, you can have 3 people read your manuscript and give detailed reports on the condition of things, or you can have 1 reader. It’s completely up to you in what you would prefer.

No matter how many book critiques you request, in most cases, they will be done concurrently, each by a different reader who is specially trained for giving the pertinent information that allows you to move forward with your book with confidence in knowing what to have done to make it ready for publishing.

We give you a written report with the details of your book’s condition. Included are recommendations on how to resolve issues and suggestions on how to make certain things even better than they are, if appropriate.

We agree with you completely that you need to know whether your book is good enough to be published! The solution is to work with professionals who will give it to you straight with no candy-coated social niceness.

Call it “tough love”, call it what you want. In any case, having a book critique will make it possible for you to develop the best book ever possible! Writer Services will supply you with the information you need to know about your book.
