honestediting_frontHonest Editing is a service provided by Writer’s Edge to give authors the editorial help they need. Our team of editors are trained professionals from a variety of publishing fields. We contract with them to work directly with you to improve the quality, scope, and style of your proposal and/or manuscript. Many of our editors have “day jobs” in the field — they work as book editors, college professors, book marketing experts, professional freelancers and more – they know what publishers and readers are looking for — and they are dedicated to helping you achieve the best possible outcome for your book project.

 We provide this help in three basic ways:

1) BOOK PROPOSAL: We can create a professionally designed proposal for you so that when you submit your work to a publisher, you are giving them something that will insure all the needed elements are included and leaves an excellent impression.

2) FULL EVALUATION: Our editors, with many years of experience, can provide a full evaluation of your manuscript to you, letting you know where it is weak, where it is strong, and what you need to do to make it better.

3) FULL MANUSCRIPT EDIT: Every manuscript and every writer needs a professional editor if they hope to succeed in not only being published, but in generating readers. Nothing reflects worse on an author than having a poorly edited manuscript. We carefully assign the right editor with experience in your manuscript’s genre.
