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.
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.)
Sample Edit submission
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.
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.
