Manuscript appraisal
Depending on your budget, this can range from providing pointers to detailed feedback.
Minimum $50. Dependent on word count.


Proofread
This is the final check before publishing to clean up any errors left behind during the editing phase. This should never be done by the same person who did the editing. Our staff are excellent at picking up errors. If you choose not to have your manuscript edited, having it proofread is an absolute must.

How often do you see "Disappointed" in the subject line of an Amazon review? When a book is full of errors, readers will notice and may give a low rating because the errors ruined their enjoyment of the story. Don't let that be your book.
