Feeling Stuck With Your Work in Progress?
We Can Help
Get a Critique of 20 Pages for Just $20
Personalized Comments At A Special Price.
Writing a book isn't for the faint of heart. It takes multiple revisions, tons of rethinking, and a lot of questions to make sure what's happening on the page matches what you had in mind.
And that doesn't even count the storm of thoughts in your head during the process.
Stuff like..."does this sound stupid?"
"Am I doing it wrong?
Or even..."Will anyone actually want to read this at all?"
If you feel stuck or insecure about your project, let this special package show you the way out.

Frequently Asked Questions
20 pages doesn't sound like a lot. How will it help me with the other 180+ pages of my book?
A small piece of feedback from an objective party can often be all you need to unearth issues that may be impacting your story. You can easily take feedback from one section & apply it to other scenes or parts of the book.
What part of my book should I send? Does it have to be the beginning?
You can send any 20 pages you like, but sending the beginning of your manuscript may help you get the most out of your feedback. It's a chance to see how well your current opening grabs your reader's attention & makes them care enough to read on.
I write poetry/flash fiction/short stories. Can I send more than one piece or does it have to be just one?
As long as it is within the 20 page limit, you can send any number of shorter pieces you want.
Are the pages double or single spaced?
The 20 page figure is based on double spaced pages with 12 point Times New Roman font.
What kind of feedback will I get?
Kori will approach your work with 2 questions in mind: what is currently working & what is confusing or distracting. You'll then receive a written summary of how to approach your revisions.
How does it work?

How long will the critique take?
You can expect to hear back from Kori within 5 to 7 businesss days.
How long do I have to sign up?
This service is only available through the end of June & submissions will be reviewed on a first come-first served basis.
Why are you doing this for such an inexpensive rate?
It's simple. The goal of Inkling Creative Strategies is to connect with as many writers as possible & help them get the support & services they need to reach their creative potential.
The more authors we are able to reach out to, the closer we'll be to achieving our mission. We'd be honored to have you join us!
What if I have questions about my feedback?
Need help? No worries. Shoot Kori an email and she'll be glad to dialogue with you about any further needs you have.
What if I want more than 20 pages reviewed?
Great news: as part of this special offer, you can add 75 cents for each additional page.
Typically, Kori's rates are based on word count, not pages, which can increase review costs. This is a great opportunity to get professional feedback at a reduced rate.
The questionnaire will have a place to opt in for additional pages & any additional payment will be discussed at the conclusion of services.
