Editorial Diagnostic Review and Critique

This is the service EVERY manuscript needs, early in the writing process.

Does your introduction grab a reader’s attention?
Is your book well structured?
Does your work engage and hold reader’s interest?
Do your chapters and sections flow logically?

Allow one of the seasoned editors of the Christian Self-Publishing Association to review your manuscript to ensure it is truly the best it can be. The goal of the Editorial Diagnostic Review and Critique service is to enhance your book in ways that are essential for it to have an opportunity to succeed.

A veteran of our editorial staff will:
• Perform a review of your manuscript, both highlighting your book’s strengths and addressing its weak areas.
• Provide constructive notes and comments for improving your manuscript to make it the best it can be.
• Offer a general overview of your manuscript, suggesting ways to make it shine.
• Highlight potential risk for legal issues in regard to copyright infringement, improper accreditation, and possible libel, if discovered during review.
• Recommendation for edit level (if applicable), whether basic copyedit, comprehensive copyedit, or substantive (rewrite) edit.
Important: No edit is performed in this service. Random portions will be read and reviewed throughout the manuscript. This service is most valuable for the first or second draft of your manuscript. Your work must be submitted as an MS Word document. This service is not for poetry or children’s books with fewer than 10,000 words. There is no phone consultation included with this service. Timeframe for this service is typically 5-10 business days.

We note that some self-publishers charge $389 or more for a limited, far less comprehensive service.
