You're done your first draft, or second or third, but you're not sure the story is good enough?
A critique will help you get a sense of the bigger picture of what is working and what isn't in your story. This is similar to a developmental (or structural) edit, but without the hefty price tag.
You'll get in-line comments on your manuscript, a full reader report on what's working, what can be improved, and an action plan on moving forward.
This report will consider:
characters and their arcs
world building and setting
point of view
any concerns you may have
resources for further study

A copyedit is what most people think about when it comes to editing. This will fix things like spelling, grammar, punctuation, and all that confusing stuff. I also flag any awkward sentences and make suggestions for clarity.

Before you hit publish, it's a good idea to get a final pair of eyes to check for any last minute errors. A proofread will ensure that there are no extra words and everything is spelled correctly. This is the final step before publishing your manuscript or sending it off to an agent.
