You may have a concept for a book or a completed manuscript that needs a professional critique. We will schedule a series of consultations to discuss your idea and move you toward developing your manuscript. This service is beneficial to authors who have a manuscript outline.
Your completed manuscript will be read for an in-depth critique that addresses pacing, tone, theme development, voice, and readability. For fiction, topics covered include plot arc and character development. Your manuscript is returned with comments and an editorial response. A free sample edit of a chapter begins the process.
Your project will be edited line by line for clarity, tone, flow and focus. We also look for problems such as passive voice, run-on sentences, cliches, spelling, grammar, and awkward wording. If the manuscript includes citations and quotes, we check these as well.
This is the last look before a project goes to print. This editing process will check for typos, dropped words, repetition, and formatting. The proof process will involve two editors who will complete this last check before the final manuscript goes to print. We also use this same process for author's copy print books
Editing Services are for books, essays, professional documents and digital material. Because every project is unique, cost will be determined after an initial, free reading of your content. For book manuscripts, we offer a free sample edit.
