Smart Start Manuscript Report

Smart Start Manuscript Report


Let’s be honest. Most agents or publishers will be making a decision on what to do with your manuscript after reading no more than a few pages at the beginning of the book. Which is why getting feedback on the START of your manuscript is just plain SMART. Select this package and we’ll provide feedback on up to the first 20,000 words of your manuscript.

Your manuscript will be read by THREE Spun Yarn readers. Our readers have been carefully selected from around the country and represent a diverse variety of age, gender, and worldview. Based upon the type of feedback that you're looking for, we'll match you up with the right three readers for your manuscript.

Your Spun Yarn Manuscript Feedback Report will be delivered to you within 14 days after we receive the draft of your book. See what a Spun Yarn Manuscript Report looks like here. We promise that you've never seen anything quite like it.

Each Spun Yarn Manuscript Report consists of three core components – Flash Feedback, Qualitative Feedback, and Quantitative Feedback. 

Flash Feedback: At the quarter, halfway, three-quarters, and ending point in the book, Spun Yarn Readers provide input on the reading experience. Flash Feedback provides excellent insight into what readers are thinking in real time as they read a manuscript.

Qualitative Feedback: Spun Yarn readers provide feedback on what they thought were the best aspects of a book, along with their opinion on the focus areas most in need of improvement. Authors also have the opportunity to pose a few questions directly to Spun Yarn readers at the outset of the feedback process, which are answered in this section of the Manuscript Report.

Quantitative Feedback: In this third section of the report, readers provide a numerical score of your novel on a scale of 1 -10 in eight key categories. By focusing on trends, correlations, and deviations in this quantitative data, the Spun Yarn is able to provide clear insight into the strengths and improvement areas in a manuscript.
