Home "I would recommend writing-partner.com to any aspiring novelist without hesitation."
Is your manuscript ready for publication? Assessing the publication readiness of your own writing is difficult. The magnitude of the process obstructs objectivity. Words and images accumulate over time, research multiplies, characters refuse to stick to the outline, and after several drafts, you suspect you may have lost touch with your original intentions. Or is it…could it be…brilliant? If only you could run the whole manuscript past someone knowledgeable…

The publishing industry is tough to break
into these days. If you go strictly by the numbers, the odds are
against you. And if you do get published, lukewarm sales of your first
book can make it even tougher to publish a second or third time. Yet
there is reason for optimism. If you are patient, open to the critique
process, and are willing to make pertinent revisions, you will improve
your chances of publication.
I look forward to partnering with you, Kathryn Craft
