If you have completed your novel and do not wish to have a professional Assessment made by our team, then you can move right on to the editing and proofreading stage.
This is what we will do:
1) A full line-edit. With your intended audience in mind, we will address the structure of your novel, the language that you use to communicate your story to the reader, clean up sloppy wording and paragraphs, and locate and destroy overused words, phrases and unneeded material.
2) And/OR a full copy-edit. We will dig through your manuscript, line by line, and clean the book up to a best-seller standard.
3) Format the book for you so that it is ready to be shown to publishers. Or, if you choose the self-publishing route, we will format it so it can be sold on Amazon, iBooks and other choice websites.
