manuscript critiques, fiction, romance, mainstream, women's fiction


I’m Danielle Stockdale, and I offer manuscript critiques to authors of romance novels as well as to authors of genre fiction that contains strong romantic elements. I work with writers who plan to self-publish as well as those who are preparing to query agents and publishers. Whether you’re dissatisfied with your work in progress or you want the input of a professional as you revise a completed manuscript, we can work together to improve your writing, preserve your reputation as an author, and entertain readers with an engaging, emotional story.

I’ve been reviewing books for over four years now, and I believe doing so has helped me study narrative techniques and elements of exceptional literature. If you want an idea of how my mind works when analyzing stories, I encourage you to visit my blog ( and browse the posts. Keep in mind, though, that my blog is NOT meant to act as a professional portfolio.

I earned the Certificate in Editing from ACES/Poynter Institute, and I've completed other courses such as Developmental Editing: In Theory and In Practice from Sophie at Liminal Pages and also the Author-Editor Clinic's Introduction to Developmental Editing.
