    Just like the 10-pager, query letter critique is about so much more than the query letter. If you are not able to concisely answer the most important question: “What’s it about?” And my notes help clarify that, chances are there is still work to do on the manuscript. Writing is re-writing. Most writers are so eager to submit that they are submitting too soon. If your query letter needs a lot of reworking, the notes will help you discover where your story may be weak. The query letter is your first line of defense in submitting. I know what will make an agent reject it or request to see pages.

  • THE 10-Page CRITIQUE

    The 10-pager $95

    I have learned that giving detailed notes for the first ten pages of your manuscript applies to much more than 10 pages. Every single writing note can be applied to the entire manuscript. Whatever writing mistakes a writer makes in 10 pages, you can bet the same mistake is being made throughout. It helps flush out: What does this story appear to be about? What are possible upcoming events in the story, and how can the draft be taken to the next level. It’s about so much more than 10 pages. Agents know after the first 5 pages if they are going to keep reading. Submit your first 10 pages for in-depth critique.

    If you are looking to workshop an entire novel, consider my advanced class.

    READY TO WRITE YOUR NOVEL BUT NEED A ROAD MAP?

    THE COMPLETE STORY is an extensive volume of writing exercises, and guided assignments all designed to help you write your story in one year, or at least finish the first draft. Jerry used to have this course priced at over $2,000, and while I feel it’s still worth that, I know that most writers do not have that kind of money to spend on a course. I am lowering the price to $499. (Graduates of the 6-week program get a substantial discount)

    THIS IS THE EXACT COURSE I USED WHILE WRITING MY FIRST NOVEL.

    PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A SELF-DIRECTED COURSE WITH THE EXCEPTION OF EMAIL FEEDBACK FROM ME AS YOU PROGRESS. IF YOU WANT MORE OF A GUIDED COURSE, LOOK INTO THE ONLINE CLASSES.

    This course will:

    Help you get started

    Help keep you going

    Help you focus on the important elements of craft

    Lead you through assignments designed to flesh out your story — The assignments will be emailed to me in order and I will give feedback accordingly

    Keep you writing during the year

    This course will be emailed to you in PDF format. Hard copies and mailings will incur an additional charge. Email Mary@Immediatefiction.com to get started.
