manuscript development

Finished your manuscript? Stuck somewhere? Not sure where to take it next? We can help with that. Start with a free mini-evaluation.

Six steps to a finished product:

1Free, no-obligation, mini-evaluation of a select portion of your manuscript.  more

2 Detailed evaluation with specific suggestions for improvement.  more

3Substantive edit to assess the structural flow and content of the manuscript.  more

4Stylistic edit to polish your manuscript, including word choice, and transitions.*  more

5Copy edit to check for grammatical errors, word usage, and consistency.*  more

6Proofread to catch errors missed in copy-editing and layout irregularities.  more

Each step is available as a standalone, in combination, or as a complete package (including indexing and design).

Word Tapestries uses a team appoach with a fresh set of trained eyes at each step in your manuscript's journey: a managing editor, a stylistic-editor*, copy-editor*, a book designer, an indexer, and a proofreader.

*Note: Stylistic edit and copy edit are often combined into one step


Navigating a book without an index is like taking a trip without a map or a travel guide — there's so much good stuff that you miss.

For an accurate quote, a PDF sample of the text (10–15 pages or a middle chapter) will be required. Please submit as much of following information as possible:

A good index makes a good book even better. It is much more than a mere list of words; it gives the reader alternate entry points to the text.
