• Editorial Diagnosis:
Nonfiction – $275; Fiction – $415
An editorial diagnosis is a thorough read of the manuscript from beginning to end. Experienced editors with genre depth are matched with each manuscript. The editor reviews it for high-level issues, such as organization, missing or extraneous content, tone, and verbosity. They also review it for lower-level issues, such as grammar, word choice, spelling, and punctuation. The diagnosis will identify any issues and make recommendations on what type of editorial work is needed to make the manuscript retail ready.
