This service is for manuscript of up to 12,000 words. An Editorial Evaluation will give you an honest assessment of the marketability of your manuscript, and how much editing will be required. When you’ve invested hundreds of hours of your time in your manuscript, and are getting ready to perhaps invest hundreds or maybe thousands of dollars of your money, an editorial evaluation involving a small fraction of that cost will help you determine how best to proceed. It will include an appraisal of the following: › A general overview of your manuscript and an honest opinion as to whether it is market ready. › How much work will be required to get your manuscript to market › How much editing will be required — and will a publishing house editor be likely to continue reading your manuscript? › Is your research sufficient for the subject? › An appraisal of writing style: quality of your overall book structure, sentence structure, choice of words, use of dialogue, character development, etc. › Constructive comments for improving your manuscript from our experienced editors NOTES › If, after obtaining an Editorial Evaluation, you decide to purchase one of our editorial services, and your manuscript is more than 65,000 words, we will deduct $399 from your overall cost. › The editorial evaluation fee is based on the industry standard manuscript word count of the first 120,000 words of your manuscript. › If your manuscript is more than 120,000 words and you would like to have your manuscript fully evaluated, Cosmo Publishing will provide a separate quote.
