Editor's Manuscript Evaluation

Price: $499

The editorial integrity of your manuscript is critical when it comes to attracting the attention of book reviewers, the media, and other important gatekeepers of the consumer book market. Before you invest time and money performing a final detailed edit of your book, have one of our professional editors assess your manuscript for strengths and weaknesses. During this evaluation, the editor will suggest improvements, and will recommend the best course of action to optimize the appeal of your book in the marketplace.

For the best results, manuscripts are matched with an editor who has a fundamental understanding and interest in your material. After an evaluation is complete, the same editor who completed the Manuscript Evaluation will continue to work with the manuscript, should you proceed with any of our editing services. This creates continuity and deepens the editor's understanding of the manuscript; it also gives the editor an opportunity to build upon the author's trust established during the editorial evaluation process. This combination produces a thorough, high-quality edit.

*Overage costs apply for manuscripts greater than 70,000 words.

When a writer is face down in a manuscript, pulling an entire world out of thin air, it is absolutely impossible to stay objective about the material; to judge whether intentions are coming across.
— Rhonda Hayter, FriesenPress Editor
