Writing can be a lonely occupation, and that often leads an author to question what they’ve written, and how well it has been presented. In the publishing world, an author’s manuscript will invariably go through a process of editorial assessment by an independent reader, and then be edited for sense, continuity and grammar.
Independent and self-publishing authors often overlook both of these stages, but they are a vital element of what makes successful books successful. Authors are usually far too close to what they have written for they themselves to be an objective judge, which is where a manuscript assessment by an experienced assessor can be of enormous benefit. At the very least, every manuscript should be edited for grammar, sense, continuity, spelling and punctuation… authors are very good at reading what they think they have written rather than what is actually down on the page!
