Manuscript Evaluation

As every writer knows, writing a book is definitely not easy. Now that you have written one, or are in the process of writing one, let us help you to make your book the best book it can be.


Concept evaluation 

If your book has not yet been completed, we offer a concept evaluation service that will assess your work and advise you as to how to proceed and how to avoid the common pitfalls. This will save you a lot of time and money in the later stages of publishing. It can be as basic or as extensive as you would like.

Depending on the type of book, we can evaluate the entire work or a sample thereof and provide you with a one- or two-page report. This will be done using the experience and skills of a professional editor, who will examine the book’s suitability for its readership looking at its language, tone and story structure, as well as its market potential.

Manuscript assessment 

Have you finished writing a book? Congratulations! We know how long it can take to write a book and the emotional investment that an author must make to get to this point. Who said writing was easy? It is certainly not, as any writer knows. Before a word is written, hours of thought and creativity have been expended, along with possibly years of experience. This followed by months, or more likely years, of work trying to write the book you have held in your head for so long. Now you want to make your book the best book that it can be. Let us help you.

We will read through your entire manuscript, carefully examining its language, structure, characters, plot, style, tone, flow, dialogue, referencing, quotations and images, as appropriate. We will provide you with an evaluation report and mark up the manuscript itself where appropriate.
