The next step after the manuscript has been written, the content or substantive edit focuses on the big picture, the overall purpose and promise of the book by clarifying ambiguities, correcting conceptual problems, and maintaining the tone of the manuscript. A content edit:
Identifies problems with overall clarity or accuracy
Evaluates the order in which the text is presented and recommends ways to reorganize
Identifies gaps in content
Analyzes sentences for structure/syntax
Suggests or provides clearer explanations, anecdotes, analogies, or illustrations
Proposes additions or deletions of headings

So you’ve written a book—kind of. You have something, ahem, that you poured over as much as you could and it is just not feeling as sharp as you hoped it would. You know the diamond is hidden in the rough there somewhere, but you just aren’t able to mine it. Book doctoring may be just what you need.
I will take your “manuscript,” evaluate it, develop a new outline and direction for it, and pulling from my fifteen years of industry knowledge, will give it the right edge it needs to stand out among other books in its category. Then, upon your approval and as you supply the content based on my direction, I will take to the task of doing all the reorganizing based on the plans we’ve set together to reshape, refocus, lengthen, or reduce your completed manuscript.
Are you in the planning phase and need some consultation along the way? Use the schedule below to see how I can help.
