EDITING & PROOFREADING

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.

Our job isn't complete until you're satisfied with the work. Set yourself apart from the thousands of authors who have their untrained friends and family editing their work for them, and get a professional from the Author's Hand to give you a leg up on the competition.

NOVEL ASSESSMENT

This service is for aspiring authors with a manuscript already completed. If you choose this service, you want to know whether or not it is ready for publishing.

This is what we will do:

1) Read your novel, front to back.

2) Provide you a professional assessment and write-up on the quality of the work, an opinion on whether your novel is ready for the market, and what your next steps should be. 

*There will be zero pressure from our team to move forward with our other services after the assessment. You will receive an honest, professional opinion, and if you choose to use the Author's Hand for further work, you are more than welcome to do so.

MENTORSHIP

Our exclusive, personalized service in which the Author's Hand has made its name. You won't find this anywhere else.

If you have an idea, or you have tried writing your novel several times and you've struggled to finish it, then the Author's Hand is exactly what you're looking for. With this package you will receive 1-on-1 writing mentorship from industry experts that will guide you from the initial outline all the way to completion.

This is what we will do:

1) You will present your idea OR you will show your current work.

2) We will outline your novel together, fitting it into a structure that will compel your audience, fit your vision, and sell.

3) You will write your novel. The Author's Hand will review your work and edit behind you, brainstorming and making suggestions and fixes along the way.

No longer will you struggle in the dark only to find that your novel won't cut it on the market. Using this service will save you money, save you time, and most importantly, save your sanity. We will push you to be the best you can be so you can make a living doing what you love and be proud of your work for years to come.

THE WHOLE PACKAGE

Are you starting from scratch and you want to see your novel through to the end? 

Then you might be right for the Whole Package deal. We don't recommend this service for those authors who are only dipping their toes in the publishing water. You have to be absolutely dedicated to the process from start to finish, with a clear goal in mind to have a published novel available for your audience within six months.

This is what we will do:

1) Assess the feasibility of your novel idea and complete thorough research into the current market, forecasting your potential success in your chosen genre and topic.

2) Outline your novel and then mentor you through the process of bringing your idea to life and making it accessible to your target audience.

3) Provide you an editor (someone different from your mentor), and comb through your novel, polishing it and ensuring it is ready for publishing.

4) 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.

*Prices cannot be tabled. Please contact The Author's Hand and we can work with you on a fair and affordable quote.
