Circalit has just launched a new service enabling aspiring writers to get feedback on their novels directly from important industry professionals such as Silvia Crompton, (senior editor, Random House), Graham Fuller (film critic for New York Times, Sight and Sound etc.) and Tom Lazarus (Hollywood Screenwriter and tutor on the UCLA screenwriting course). Writers receive a detailed critique of their novel and its suitability for market, and if the novel is recommended by a professional reviewer, it will be taken forward to agents and publishers (at no cost to the writer) through the Circalit Gold List.
At the moment, they are offering huge discounts.You can get a feedback report from Anna Jean Hughes (editor, Random House) for only £120, or Pria Taneja (editorial, Harper Collins) for only £99. Please have a look at www.circalit.com/profiles/
