First Page Critique Service

Have you ever wondered if the first page of your manuscript has what it takes to hook an agent, editor, or reader?

Sometimes it’s hard to analyze our own work. We’re too close to it, too invested. But don’t despair. Greta and Megan are here to help.

Send one or the other of us the first chapter of your manuscript, answer a few basic questions, and we’ll critique your first page based on:

  • Genre expectations
  • Opening hook
  • Point of View Character
  • Foreshadowing
  • Tension

Here are a couple of examples of what to expect:
