Manuscript Evaluations

The power of a manuscript overview makes it one of the best tools that traditional publishing houses and literary agents make available to their authors to increase their success. Best-selling authors receive great editing and feedback on completed drafts from agents and senior editors before the Line Editing begins. Most authors never receive this vital feedback on early drafts, which leads to expensive editing outlays and inefficiencies in the publishing process. When feedback comes early in a work’s progress it allows the author to create a more polished and compelling final product, which leads to better opportunities to create and publish more works.
