Weil Editorial Services offers in-depth manuscript editing from an award-winning writer and editor. Every editor has their own approach to manuscript editing; my approach is to give each manuscript a thorough first read, looking for flaws in the plot line, characterization, voice, point of view, continuity errors, and the overall structure of the story.
From there, we write a comprehensive critique to help each writer see where they can make improvements. This is just the beginning. Then we work with you on a one-on-one basis until we resolve all major flaws. After that, the manuscript is ready for a line edit.
As the line edit progresses, the finer points of the story show through, revealing subtle flaws that can throw a reader off track. Although the overall structure of the manuscript is extremely important, the importance of a good line edit cannot be overemphasized. During this process, we fine-tune the manuscript, and, of course, grammar, punctuation, spelling, and sentence structure are intensely scrutinized. This is the hallmark of good manuscript editing.
Weil Editorial Services will perfect your manuscript for as long as it takes. Commitment, excellence, integrity, and brutal honesty are what make Weil Editorial Services your top choice for choosing a quality editor who will bring out the best in your writing.
Weil Editorial Services charges a flat rate for its services, based upon the number of pages in your manuscript. This includes the entire package described above, as well as working with each writer through the rewrites. On top of it, we will promote your book on our website once it is published.
Weil Editorial Services is committed to the success of its writers!
Weil Editorial Services also offers Line Editing, Copy Editing, or Proof Reading for manuscripts that may not need full Developmental Editing. Manuscript Editing takes many forms, according to how well-polished the manuscript may be.
Line Editing, of course, is much more comprehensive than Copy Editing or Proof Reading. In this case, sentence structure may be heavily tweaked, as well as word choices, grammar, punctuation and spelling.
Copy Editing entails tweaking sentence structure for grammatical correctness, as well as correcting common grammar mistakes, punctuation, and spelling.
Proof Reading merely checks the manuscript for grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors.
We tailor our services to whatever your needs may be. If we feel you may need more than just a line edit, we will let you know. If your manuscript is nicely polished and needs only a Copy Edit, we will adjust our services accordingly. Weil Editorial Services strongly believes that editing should be customized for every writer we work with, and that your unique voice should be developed and emphasized by allowing you to find your own words with our expert guidance. We want your story to flourish as a result of your creativity and our help. It is our goal to make your writing the best it can be!
Weil Editorial Services understands that the publishing process has never been more daunting, even more so for first-time authors. Manuscript editing is only the first step towards winning that elusive publishing contact. Finding the right agent is key to getting traditionally published. Nowadays, your manuscript must be camera-ready copy and polished to a sheen. But the query letter is what will get your foot in the door. The query letter is a brief synopsis outlining your story, any special qualifications you have that may discern you as an expert on the topic you are writing about, and any previous writing credentials should you have any.
The query letter must be absolutely perfect. You need to sell your story and yourself as a writer as quickly as possible. In other words, agents read hundreds of query letters per week, so your query letter must stand out from the crowd. It must be concise, compelling, and urge the agent to request more. Sometimes agents will request the first few pages of your manuscript along with the query letter. Whatever their guidelines, you must follow them to the letter, or your hard work will be trashed.
Weil Editorial Services has helped dozens of writers craft query letters that get results. Having worked as an agent, we know the difference between an effective query letter and one that doesn’t make it past the first paragraph. Our goal is to make sure you go the distance and cross the finish line. Our ultimate goal is to make sure you see your manuscript in print.
