Do I need a Manuscript Assessment?

Thank you so much for your critique. Up until I read your summary of what you thought of the content of my book, I had no idea how good it was. For you to call it 'beautiful' and a potential 'masterpiece', it has really given me the confidence to try and get my novel published. Even though I know the stats are against me, I now have the determination going forward.

You came up with so many excellent ideas for improving 'Sunspots'. I think you have turned a good book into a great book. It was worth every penny of the fee that I paid. I took a risk and it really paid off. It was apparent that you must have read my book all the way through at least twice.

If you have any hints or tips on how to improve my chances of getting a publisher please let me know. I'd be willing to negotiate a fee for any extra help or knowledge you have. I would highly recommend yourself and 'Paper True' to anyone who has spent a large chunk of their life writing a novel or any other piece of work. I made some stipulations regarding the kind of person I wanted to critique my work before I handed over the fee.

PaperTrue is my partner in writing. I've been using it for a month now as I write a one-hour TV pilot. Each time I finish an act I submit it to PaperTrue. I've used other services that simply told me what was wrong with my writing but didn't make any recommendations on how to fix it.
