In-depth Editorial Appraisal for Fiction/Memoir

Fiction books and memoirs are slightly different products. For those authors desiring comprehensive evaluations of their manuscript, a book editor is matched based on the subject matter. The entire manuscript is read, allowing the editor to pay closest attention to the story and character development, continuity of story elements, pacing, tone, and other elements of voice and style. The fairest way to charge for this service is by the word. The author receives a report with findings, recommendations, and a sample edit.
