Editorial Review and Feedback

Are you looking for feedback to improve your manuscript? If you are confident in your writing but just want a second opinion on the content, this is the service for you. Precise Edit can provide global recommendations on your manuscript, as well as embed comments, recommendations, and questions within the text–which you can use to guide your revision.

Precise Edit provides feedback to help you strengthen the overall story. We consider plot structure, characterization, flow and pacing, supportive narration—basically all issues that draw your readers into the story, keep them reading, and leave them satisfied when done. We also offer you final story polishing, the detail work on a novel that can be most intensive, as well as copy editing and proofreading. Free consultation is available with any service.

Nonfiction Books
Nonfiction can be a powerful medium for communicating your ideas, information, and beliefs, but they must be written well to be effective. The information must be credible and logically organized, and the ideas must be justified and easy to understand. Precise Edit can help you meet these criteria so your readers will have the benefit of your knowledge.
