While I had a good idea of what an appraisal of my MS might uncover, from some partial critiques (and which I did not share), Susan delivered an analysis that was more detailed than anything I'd seen, was consistent with my expectations, but also identified one or two more areas for work.
The final report was well laid out, so easy to understand, and made it easy for me to see what did (and what did not) need further work, both at the high level and at the individual line level.
After Susan's appraisal I believe my re-worked MS is now in good shape to go before an agent or an editor - and that represents money well spent.
