Book editor Calgary

Ever finished writing something and known that it needs more polish, but found yourself unable to pinpoint exactly what the problem spots are? Whether it’s an academic dissertation or a romance novel, it’s always frustrating to realize that something isn’t your best work, yet still have only the vaguest idea of how to fix it.

Thankfully, that’s where editorial assessment comes in. For authors, hiring an individual book editor to go over one’s manuscript makes it so much easier to recognize which problems need solving — and which, if any, additional editors should be hired as well. Editorial assessments are especially great because they’re quick, they’re fairly inexpensive, and — best of all — they give you peace of mind. Once you’ve gotten an editorial assessment from a professional book editor, you no longer have to fret about accidentally glossing over your book’s weak spots. An editorial assessment lays it all out on the table, so you can reinforce or eliminate those spots before they’re exposed to the public.

As for where to get it, lots of editors perform editorial assessments, but finding one who will do a really thorough job may be a challenge. That’s where you can trust Reedsy: our book editors have years of experience, both in hands-on editing and editorial assessment, and many even worked for Big 5 publishers in the past. You could hire an amazing book editor in Calgary today — sign up to view their profiles and find a qualified, attentive professional to assess your book.
