Editing & Manuscript Assessment

Manuscript Assessment

Just need a fresh, professional perspective? Or a little advice?

Are you wondering if your manuscript is ready to be published? Or maybe your plot is veering off in too many directions. Want a little character advice? Having trouble with a narrative device? A thorough manuscript assessment analyzes the plot, structure, POV, character development, style, and efficacy of your narrative. Let me help you harness your writing and steer your book project in the best direction.

 

CONTENT EDITING & BOOK COACHING

A writer's path to success: Become a professional author.

A content edit examines the structure of your manuscript and informs you of any revisions needed in the way in which your ideas are conveyed, ordered, or presented. Through an in-depth, professional synopsis, this type of comprehensive edit also offers you suggestions on how to improve your manuscript both in concept and delivery. Every content edit also includes a full copyedit.

A book coach is an editor with the capabilities and knowledge to lead you all the way through the publishing process and beyond. I offer my authors unlimited writing coaching and help finding the right graphic designer to design the interior layout and cover design for their book. I also lead my clients through the actual publication process, whether they decide to self-publish or pursue a press. Once their book is complete, authors learn how to market their book, how to boost sales, and how to develop and execute a business plan that revolves around their publication.

Copyediting

So you never have to waste time worrying about commas.

A copyedit simply corrects all grammatical errors in your manuscript. This includes punctuation errors, spelling, tense, an evaluation of syntax, sentence structure, format, spacing, and style of the pieces

 

 


"Working with Amanda was wonderful! I finally found an editor I could rely on completely to deliver the highest quality results. She took the time to understand my vision for the book and guided me every step of the way. Amanda went about and beyond to make sure I was happy with every part of the book, down to the tiniest details. She was patient, understanding, responsive, and committed to my happiness. Thank you for your huge contribution in making my dream a reality!"
