About This Gig

Need help with your children's book manuscript? 

I will critique your picture book starting with a mini critique at $20.

Picture books are a special art form and one of my favorite things is helping writers make their work the best it can be while staying true to their own voice and vision. I will give comments, suggestions, or questions about story elements like opening, character, plot, language, logic, concept, etc. to help you revise your story. 

"I've had a lot of critiques and I can say Danielle's are top notch."

—Dev Petty, author of I Don't Want to be a Frog, I Don't Want to be Big (October '16) and Claymates (2017)

"Danielle is a true picture book expert and someone I trust implicitly with my work."

Carter Higgins, author of Everything You Need for a Treehouse (2017) and This is Not a Valentine (2017). 

Please refer to the three packages I offer in choosing what's best for you and feel free to reach out with any questions or specific requests.


If you request a custom offer, I can provide something specific to your project—help with developing a story, a letter addressing a specific question, or whatever you're looking for. 

I hope to hear from you!
