Manuscript Services

We know there are some authors who have their own editors/coaches/etc. so these services are available on an individual basis. If you were to invest in each service separate from the Manuscript Bundle, you would pay more. There is no flat rate for a lot of these additional services, so we'll give you a quote for those you are needing.
