At FriesenPress, we read every book we publish, and every book receives an Editor's Manuscript Evaluation. This provides crucial professional feedback about your book’s strengths and where it can be improved. Our vetted, professional editors deliver essential services such as Copy Editing, Developmental Editing, Content Editing, Proofreading, Back Cover Copywriting, and more.
Having an editor polish your manuscript reduces distractions that can diminish your book's readability - distractions like convoluted content structure, incorrect grammar, and persistent typos. The use of correct and clear language is crucial for positive book reviews, for opening doors to the media, and will increase the chances of your book being considered by bookstore buyers and our publishing partners.
Our professional editors examine your manuscript thoroughly to ensure it meets the expectations of a discriminating book market; after an Editor's Manuscript Evaluation, the editor will identify a clear path to an editing approach that will best serve you, your manuscript, and your goals.
Our Vetting Process
Every FriesenPress editor has been vetted via a stringent examination based on Editors Canada Standards - an internationally recognized criterion defining the level of performance expected of a professional editor. All FriesenPress editors are anonymously evaluated by a long-standing Editors Canada professional standards committee member to ensure the highest level of editing excellence for each of our authors. And if that weren’t enough, we also have an in-house quality assurance process that reviews the editing work once complete.
In short, FriesenPress offers the highest quality editing services in the industry. Period.
