Will you read my story, all 600 uncut pages of it, and help me get it published?
No. Please don’t ask. Don’t even ask me to read your synopsis or your first chapter or even your cover letter.
I strongly believe that voice is the #1 thing that will get you sold. If I read your work and make suggestions, then my voice gets imposed on yours.
Also, I don’t have time. If I could fit 5 more hours in the day, I still wouldn’t want to read it, because when I have time to read, I want to grab a book out of my to-be-read pile and have some major fun. Not critique or edit. I leave that to editors, who know what they’re doing.
I can’t buy your book, and I don’t have an editor who loves me enough to buy a book that she didn’t love. So there’s really no point anyway.
I will wish you tons of luck, though!
