Before You Choose An Editor…

Sometimes self-published authors select the wrong type of editing for their project simply because they haven’t been properly educated about the true condition of their manuscript.

Before beginning any editorial work, we perform an EDITORIAL ASSESSMENT. It is an objective opinion of how much help your manuscript currently needs.

Here’s what you’ll receive:

  • A thorough reading of your work.
  • Identification of what is working well in your piece and what needs further development or changes. 
  • An assessment of what type of editing is required for your current manuscript.
  • An MP3 recording detailing our findings.
  • A written summary of the main points of the assessment, along with a formal quote for editorial services.

Our EDITORIAL ASSESSMENT is $97 for a completed manuscript of 25 pages (12-pt font, double spaced) or more. The turnaround time is typically less than a week.

Even if you are considering working with other editors, you can request an EDITORIAL ASSESSMENT from us as a stand-alone service. You can also use it to receive a second opinion of an edit that was already completed.

If you decided to use our editorial services, the cost of your EDITORIAL ASSESSMENT will be deducted from your editing services balance, but only if services are initiated within 30 days of our team emailing your completed assessment.
