Manuscript Critique

Get specific advice to help revise your manuscript on a structural level


A manuscript critique is a thorough and in-depth analysis of all the major components of your manuscript.  

  • Fiction authors can expect feedback, insight, and advice on: storytelling, structure, plot, characterization, dialogue, viewpoint and narration, hooks, tone, pacing and progression, setting, voice, and writing mechanics.

  • Non-fiction authors can expect feedback, insight, and advice on: content, structure, organization, clarity, focus, mechanics, writing style, and suitability for intended readership.

Comprehensive Editing

The most in-depth level of book editing we offer


A comprehensive edit is the highest and most in-depth level of book editing we offer. This edit focuses on the structure and content of the story, the language use, and the writing style. During this edit, your editor will assess the impact of your story:

  • Is the meaning of your story clear and your use of language effective?

  • Does the story flow naturally or is it disrupted by clumsy transitions?

  • Have any scenes been overwritten and has repetition crept into the story?

  • Is it an enjoyable and satisfying read and is there room for it in the market?

A comprehensive edit includes a line edit, a structural edit, and a written editor's report offering advice and recommendations for improvement.

Copyediting

The final step before publication


Copyediting is the last stage of the editorial process, the final tidy-up, the spit and polish before you show it off. Here’s where editors become thoroughly annoying with their obnoxious comments about apostrophes and ‘your’ versus ‘you’re’.

 

A copyedited book shows readers you have taken the time to enhance their reading experience; that you respect and appreciate them.

Editorial Consultation

Fix specific problems, one-on-one


Work directly with an editor who will encourage you, answer your questions, share ideas, and solve problems. An editorial consultation will help you close the gap between your ideas and your writing.

 

An editorial consultation gives you the chance to discuss anything with an editor specializing in your genre.
