The Editorial Evaluation is a manuscript checkup that assesses your work to be sure that it has fulfilled the basic requirements of a published book. The editorial evaluator will not only provide you with a general overview of your manuscript, but also educate you through constructive comments on how to write a better book.
The Griot Editorial Team will provide you with a detailed report on the observations of an evaluator about the strengths and weaknesses of your manuscript (rather than an editing of your manuscript). Please note: The Editorial Evaluation is not a replacement for Griot Publishing editorial services. Rather, it is a preliminary diagnostic tool, examining several sections of the manuscript in detail, to pinpoint areas in need of improvement. Evaluators offer examples of items that could be strengthened, and give critique and commentary across a range of topics.
The Editorial Evaluation fee is based on industry standard manuscript word count of 100,000 words or fewer. For manuscripts above 100,000 words, the author may choose a section of the manuscript equaling 100,000 continuous words to be assessed during the Editorial Evaluation. If the author wishes to have the full manuscript evaluated, a fee of $50 for each 50,000 words over 100,000 will be required. A manuscript of 150,000 words would have an additional fee of $50; 200,000 words would have an additional fee of $100, and so on. Should the author purchase one of our editing services, the full manuscript will be edited line by line. This service is $499.00 and can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 4 months depending on the size and condition of the manuscript.
