Advent Prize: The Spun Yarn’s Complete Manuscript Feedback Package

Today’s Giveaway

Imagine if three veteran beta readers gave you feedback on your complete manuscript, which was then analyzed and curated into a report for you by a seasoned editor. I think we just discovered writing heaven, friends!

At a value of $499, the Complete Manuscript Package is The Spun Yarn‘s most detailed manuscript critique, curated by The Spun Yarn Editor based on full reads from three veteran readers.

The Spun Yarn starts by selecting readers according to your genre and any other demographic factors you’d like us to consider. If you’ve written a YA we’ll assign a mix of teen and adult YA lovers, or if you’ve written in a specific setting we’ll tap one of our readers from the area. Each reader reads your full MS (up to 100,000 words) and answers a series of questions, including real-time check-ins, overall quantitative feedback, questions you’ve posed, and scores in eight key categories like Plot and Character.

What makes the Complete Manuscript Report different from any other manuscript critique is the consensus our editor is able to gather from three full sets of feedback as she curates your report and provides actionable suggestions for revision. Trends become much clearer when three independent unbiased readers agree. To see a sample report and learn more about The Spun Yarn, check out our website and author testimonials.

OMG, this prize, people! Want a chance to win it? Just enter below, and good luck.
