“I wrote a middle grade fanta­sy novel about four years ago, which I tried to sell. It went nowhere. I stuck the manuscript in a drawer and began working on other projects. Six months ago, when I pulled out my dusty manuscript to try to revise it…” (read full testi­mo­ni­al)

Submit Your Middle Grade Novel

Middle grade novels are all the rage. And although they have their own partic­u­lar tone and voice, it is the one catego­ry where there is such a wide range in reading level, length and sophis­ti­ca­tion.

So this is where you can see if your middle grade novel works.

There are 3 kinds of services for your manuscript — a Full Critique, Just-a-Read, or The Concept.  Click on Critiques to find out more.

Get Started

Please submit your middle grade novel by email via the submis­sion form that will then direct you to payment. Once I receive every­thing I will send a confir­ma­tion by email.

You will get a written critique and a phone call from me. We will sched­ule a brief phone call once the critique is received to discuss comments and any questions you have about market­ing or publish­ing. You can enter best times to be reached on the submis­sion form and we’ll come up with a time best for both of us. In addition, if you have any specif­ic concerns about your manuscript (your concept or execu­tion of that concept), feel free to include in the comments section.

Click any book cover to visit publish­er.
