Hey!!! Just because there's a greter acceptance here doesn't mean we're fools! Why on earth would a British writer pay $2000 for an American "critique", when she can pay less than $700 (That seems the standard fee for a 100k ms critique here - I just checked a few) for a reputable British one! And they ARE reputable in Britain.Originally Posted by CaoPaux
I just googled for a British based manuscript critique and only two came up on page one, both of which seem perfectly OK, with published author credits. I would say that the crieria for judging a good critique service is the same as for an agent: how many of their ex-clients are published, and with whom?
