You can minimize bad reviews and rejection by having your manuscript professionally edited by us.

Manuscript Critique

EDITORIAL LETTER

A manuscript critique is a big-picture assessment of your book and is a recommended first step for every writer. Similar to an agent's letter, you'll get a detailed editorial letter that addresses your book's strengths and weaknesses, structure, characters, genre, and marketability and includes guidance on revision.


Developmental Editing

EdiTORIAL LETTER + MARGIN NOTES

Developmental editing is a thorough big-picture edit of your book. You'll get a detailed editorial letter, plus extensive feedback and suggestions inserted into the margins of your manuscript. Lots of coaching on craft and examples will be included.


Line Editing & Copyediting

Line-by-Line Editing & Corrections

Line editing is when we examine your book on the sentence level and address awkward or unclear writing, wordiness, redundancies, weak dialogue, and more. Copyediting is a line-by-line correction of your manuscript, with the goal of making your writing clear, artful, professional. We'll correct errors in grammar and spelling, and any inconsistencies that we find.


Proofreading

Pre-Publication Polish

Proofreading is the final polish of your book before it's published and is recommended only for previously copyedited manuscripts. We proofread Microsoft Word documents, PDFs, printed galleys, and e-book files (EPUB and MOBI), either on-screen or by hand. This service ensures that your book is free of errors and correctly formatted.
