A Novel Edit accepts manuscript submissions under four categories for our fiction editing services. Whether you want a Sample Edit or a quote on a finished fiction manuscript, A Novel Edit is ready when you ask, “Who can help edit my novel?”

Choose a submission option and follow the link to submit your manuscript.


Sample Edit

Submit the first couple of chapters and the chapter containing page 200 of your fiction manuscript. I will return a sample edit (usually the first 2-3 pages) so you can see the types of elements included in a manuscript edit from A Novel Edit. I will also include a quote for The Full Edit with this submission. (If you prefer sending your whole manuscript rather than only a few chapters, I will accept that.)

Quote Only

Submit the first chapter and the chapter containing page 200 of your fiction manuscript. I will return a quote for The Full Edit. Choose this option if you’ve already received a Sample Edit (one per client) or you don’t need a Sample Edit.    

                                       Quote Only submission




The First Thirty

Submit the first thirty pages of your fiction manuscript (double-spaced, 8,000 word maximum). This is often the number of pages required by agents or acquiring editors when they want a partial manuscript. I will return an edit of the first thirty pages. Full payment is required at time of service.

The Full Edit

After we’ve discussed your manuscript and agreed on a price and date, you’ll send your manuscript and I’ll begin your edit. A minimum of half the edit fee is due before I begin your edit. Balance is due before I return the manuscript to you.
