This is where an we look at your manuscript from the “big picture” viewpoint. Our content editor keeps her finger on the pulse of the message while making sure that manuscripts are well-written. Our content editor will ask these questions: Is the theme or plot of the book well-developed and organized? If it is a novel, is there good story-telling and snappy dialog? Does the story move at a good pace? Are the characters original and believable? Are the sub-plots well-integrated? If we spot anything that could use change, we will make the notes for our clients.
With both fiction and non-fiction, sometimes there can be contradictions, inconsistencies, factual errors or discrepancies. Is there an introduction and conclusion? Is the book written for the right target market and will it grab attention? A content editor may review and return the manuscript to the writer with suggestions to re-write, move, delete or add sections, or perhaps we will offer to do that work ourselves.
