Has anyone here used Book Doctors?
After some preliminary feedback and advice, which has been helpful, they're recommending a one hour consultation session for query letter help and publishing strategy - which won't be free, and will frankly cost me more than I can afford at the moment. However, if anyone has experience with Book Doctors (the actual name of the company), is it worth the investment? Does anyone know anyone who knows anyone who's worked with them? (Does anyone here actually work for Book Doctors?)
Ian, Book Doctors charges $250 for an hour consultation. My editor is charging me $450 for a one-hundred-sixty pages of my book developmental edit. I'll have it by the end of the week. I have chosen her on the basis of critiques of pieces we have both read and commented on. I feel that our thinking is in sync. I'll let you know whether I think the money was worth it in a few days. Smart pitches are great, but I'm going to start the process with a professional review of my product.
