The Silver review is our most popular service. This level offers the author a chance to see how well their entire manuscript will be received through the standard submission process with a publisher or literary agent. The Silver review includes a certification (Level 1, 2, or 3) that can be used as part of your submission process to a publisher or literary agent.
A Level 1 certification implies that the manuscript is in need of significant editing and content revision before submission or publication.
A Level 2 certification implies that the manuscript is largely good and is worth pursuing for publication but requires editing and other content revision to increase the successful reception of the manuscript.
A Level 3 certification implies that the manuscript demonstrates a high level of craftsmanship in the writing, the characters, the plot, and in copy editing. This is what we consider to be submission ready, perhaps not flawless, but at a high level that is worthy of publication or representation by a literary agent. Part of this service is that publishers and literary agents will be able to securely confirm that you have received such a designation. Those that obtain a Level 3 certification are able to include this designation in their submission efforts helping them to stand out and garner the attention a quality manuscript deserves.
After purchasing your Silver review you will be prompted to upload your entire manuscript file to our secure site. The Silver review DOES NOT offer specific advice, feedback, or criticisms of the plot, characters, or general presentation of the material. Authors can expect a 3–4 week turnaround time for receiving the results of their review.
*Please note: the standard price and time frame are for manuscripts up to 120,000 words. For Silver reviews of manuscripts that exceed 120,000 words in length, add an additional $50 and an added seven days of lead time.
