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.
