Manuscript Review

manuscript-reviewMANUSCRIPT EVALUATION: This is a quick, market-oriented analysis of your idea, theme, plot. etc. The bottom line here: is your book ready for prime time?

BOOK READ: A book read is a professional editor’s evaluation of the manuscript for writing quality and marketability. It involves no corrections or editing. In our detailed critique of your work, we indicate strengths and weaknesses. This will be given to you in a report that codifies our findings and assessment, including suggestions regarding thematic issues and writing techniques. If you decide to use our editing service for the same work, we will apply 50% of the book read payment toward the price of a full edit. You can send a sample of the writing via e-mail attachment and we can provide you with a price quote.


The cost of your editing is divided into several installments. You approve all material before additional payments are due. At Arbor Services, we’re happy to discuss your book over the phone and give you a free estimate.
