Getting a foot-in-the-door of publishing world is notoriously difficult. Often, writers are kept outside not because their work is flawed in some deep way, but because they are missing a few little things that publishers immediately notice.
Open only during brief windows once or twice per year, our "Focus, Assess, Recharge" service gives you a publisher's eye view of your book so far. We'll show you both the strengths and the weaknesses, and help you discover opportunities in your work that you may have missed.
Send your work into our senior editors, and you will receive a forthright one page document designed to help you get your work commercially published and identify what impediments there may be to be overcome and to build upon your strengths.
Unlike our premium manuscript review service which is focused on more detailed, line-by-line feedback, "Focus, Assess, Recharge" is designed to give you clarity on the direction you should now be moving in in order to end up with a successful and commercially viable book.
Our Story: Exisle Publishing was founded in the early 1990s with the mission of giving a voice to writers whom the mainstream often overlooked. Ironically, we've since become something of a mainstream publisher ourselves, with branches in Australia, New Zealand, the United States and the United Kingdom, and a successful children's imprint, EK Books. But we haven't forgotten our roots, and our mission. With Exisle Academy we want to guide people who have a message, who have something to say, but who may not yet have the knowledge, experience and industry contacts, along the path to making their book the success it deserves to be.
Here's what some of our recent students have said:
"I contacted the publisher lead you gave me and I followed your pitch process and things seem to be working! You're a legend!"

"Your advice about injecting craziness into the story, to have fun with it and build up on characterization, and to also allow for a more simple use of language, makes complete sense."

We understand that many authors are happy to "go it alone," but would benefit hugely from a quick shot of professional insight to give you the confidence and clarity to move forward to the next stage. "Focus, Assess, Recharge" gives you one page of actionable feedback that will help you understand how your book looks from a publisher's perspective, and what steps you now need to take in order to get your book successfully published.
A complete Manuscript Review is a much more involved process, giving you line by line feedback across your entire book, as well as a dedicated editor. A complete manuscript review costs US $997 for a children's book, and US $2997 for an adult non-fiction book. With "Focus, Assess, Recharge" we aim to offer a more affordable solution to help more writers realize their books and bring their ideas to life.
"I’d just like to say that I have never had such good, in-depth and motivational advice on my writing before, not even on the Creative Writing course, which was part of my BA hons degree with the [Major British University]."
