MANUSCRIPT CONSULTATION

In this one-hour session, Irina Dunn will advise you on how to improve your manuscript and go about getting it published.

Email Irina Dunn (irinadid@ozemail.com.au) the first 1,500 words of your manuscript for this assessment and she will call you on your landline anywhere in Australia or meet you face to face to discuss your work for 60 minutes at a time suitable for you.

 

DETAILED MANUSCRIPT ASSESSMENT

This includes a comprehensive written report on the strengths and weaknesses of your manuscript, with specific suggestions on how to proceed with it.

It is always advisable to get an assessment done before you contract an editor to work on your manuscript as the assessment may show up structural and other big picture items that need to be fixed before the polish of a final edit.

Email your manuscript to Irina Dunn (irinadid@ozemail.com.au) for a quote.

PUBLISHING / MARKETING PROPOSAL

Irina Dunn can help you prepare a publishing proposal for your manuscript, as well as all other documents you will need to present to a publisher as part of your submission.

Irina Dunn can also send out the proposal on your behalf to selected Australian and/or international publishers and deal with their replies and requests before forwarding the inquiries and/or offers to you. However, this will only be done in cases when Irina believes the manuscript has genuine publishing potential, and this usually occurs only after she has either edited or assessed the manuscript and is satisfied with the quality and content of the manuscript.
