QUICK WRITING ANALYSISShare

IS YOUR WORK READY FOR MARKET?

Find out before investing your time or money with our affordable Quick Writing Analysis Service!

Here's what you'll get:
  • Commercial evaluation
    Taking a quick look, we'll let you know if your novel, screenplay, nonfiction book, or children's story is commercial in today's marketplace and, if not, why not. If it's fiction, we'll also tell you if it would be stronger as a book or a screenplay.

  • Problem Areas
    We'll point out any specific flaws
    (a) in your story: character arc, plot, development, etc. - even the writing itself; or
    (b) in your nonfiction approach.

  • Suggested Improvements
    A few specific suggestions to address any of these problem areas. You only get one chance to make a first impression - Make it your best.

    Just $150 for a one-page Quick Writing Analysis of your two-page synopsis ("overview" or "treatment"), sent in to us in Courier New 12-point, on single-sided double-spaced pages, and your two best sample pages.

    If you can't seem to get your synopsis down to two pages, add $25 for each additional page you send. (Sample pages are limited to only two.) Each analysis and consultation is performed by a published novelist, published nonfiction writer, or optioned screenwriter, and double-checked by a professional Writer's Lifeline editor with best-selling marketing savvy. Your analysis will be sent to you by email at the address specified by you, within no more than 3-4 weeks.

    Your payment for the Quick Writing Analysis is applicable against any further Writer's Lifeline service you contract for.

  • AGENTS AND MANAGERS
    If you're a literary agent or manager and could use our help perfecting your clients' projects for publication and/or production, we'd love to work with you because we're good at fixing stories that aren't working yet.

    Writer's Lifeline, Inc., based on experience, can add potentially multi-million dollar value to projects that you haven't been able to sell, or wouldn't consider representing, because of the "shape" they're in.

    In one case, we turned a great idea for a novel into a $1.1 million preemptive film deal, then re-edited the MS and auctioned it for $2.2 million. In another, we took a novel MS that had been shopped to publishers and production companies, worked on it for nine months, then changed the name and sold it for $750,000!

    When we receive the referral from you, we will work out our relationship (including referral fees, where appropriate)--which can also involve having our parent company AEI, Inc. co-rep the work with you.


    DID YOU KNOW?
    Projects developed by Writer's Lifeline have accounted for approximately seventy percent of sales (over $21 million and rising) made by its affiliated literary management and film production company, AEI, Inc. since the company's 1997 founding. Find out more!
