Book Editing

Editorial Assessment

An editorial assessment is used to determine just what type of edit is recommended for your manuscript. Not all manuscripts are the same, and many require different types of edits. Our editors will take a close look at the first 1,500 words of your book and create a one page summary that lets you know which type of edit we would recommend for your manuscript.

  • Professional copyedit of first 1,500 words of the manuscript

  • Detailed summary of all edits made

  • Expert recommendations for full manuscript edit

  • Manuscript returned with Microsoft Word Track Changes enabled

  • May choose to apply or ignore edits performed
