Brief Manuscript Assessment

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Let's uplift the calibre of your children's book manuscript, quickly and easily!

We'll get you one step closer to being published with a brief manuscript assessment. 

Ethicool's editorial team will review your manuscript, and provide you with the following: 

  • A one-page summary of feedback, highlighting the strengths of your story and where it might need to be improved;
  • General editing notes;
  • A recommendation for Ethicool's coveted "Action Page". 

The review will also include a 15-minute conversation with Ethicool's Editorial Associate to unpack our feedback in more detail. 

Note: Undertaking a manuscript assessment does not guarantee that your story will be shortlisted or published by Ethicool or elsewhere, but it will definitely improve your chances, as well as provide you with valuable feedback to support your ongoing journey toward publication.

Commonly newborns through to seven year-olds, but we like to think we're equally loved by very big kids, too!

That depends how good it is! Seriously, though, we're signing new authors all the time and you can learn more HERE.

Ethicool HQ is in Tasmania, Australia, but we have a large warehouse presence in Berkeley, USA, servicing the northern hemisphere.

When we have new release titles on the way (i.e. in the middle of being printed or shipped to our warehouses), we put them up for pre-order. It usually means they're a few weeks or months away from being delivered to customers.

All Ethicool books are printed on FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) and/or recycled papers, using soy-based inks.
