Editorial Assessment

$299.00

Our Editorial Assessment evaluates sections of your manuscript to gauge what type or level of editing could help polish it. As part of the process, a portion of your work (typically the first chapter or about 1,700 words) will be edited to provide you with a sample. We will give you a general assessment of your manuscript and commentary toward improving it.

The estimated time frame for the Editorial Assessment is two to three weeks. Depending on the results, the editorial evaluator will recommend the services of either a line editor, content editor, or developmental editor. If you choose to purchase the editing service recommended for your manuscript, we will assign your book to an editorial specialist who will take your book through a thorough editing process and address issues raised in the Editorial Assessment. You may also opt to work with your own editor or make the recommended changes yourself.

Note:
The Editorial Assessment is not a replacement for our editorial services but a preliminary diagnostic process that determines which areas of your manuscript need improvement.

You may opt to work with your own editor or make the recommended changes yourself. However, should you decide to purchase any of our Editorial Services and your manuscript is 75,000 words or more, the $199.00 editorial assessment fee will be deducted from the overall editing cost.
