A manuscript assessment of your draft is mandatory for first-time clients. A 50% credit
will be given if you decide to invest in one of our editing packages.
The manuscript assessment is necessary to help you make the best decisions possible for
all of the subsequent steps you take towards completion of your publishing project.
The manuscript assessment is provided after you have completed your self-edits and
before you decide on a professional editing package. The manuscript assessment is not meant to
be a book review, an editing component, or an endorsement of your manuscript. Our editing
team reads your entire manuscript, researches similar titles already on the market, and analyzes
your potential book from various viewpoints.
Your manuscript assessment is designed to be a tool for you and includes:
• A suggested editing level based on the review of your manuscript.
• A summary of any potential liability and/or copyright concerns.
• Recommendations of the proposed title and subtitle of your book based on research on
comparable books on the market.
• A detailed summary of the publishing and marketing packages we recommend to
maximize your book’s potential.
