Editorial critiques help authors improve their writing skills. Critiques examine a book or manuscript, focusing on themes, symbolism, character development, flow, plot holes, and the like. Book reviews tend to focus more on a reader’s opinion. Melina writes a combination of both.
People don’t like to be told when they’ve made a mistake. However, constructive criticism can help writers grow. The feedback can be used to correct any editing errors in the manuscript or to completely rewrite the manuscript.
I provide editorial critiques to self-published authors and traditionally published authors at the start of their careers.
