Editorial Excellence: Helping You Build a Foundation for Success

You’ve put a lot of work into writing your manuscript, and at iUniverse we don’t think anything should stand in the way of reaching your publishing goals. We understand that it takes more than simply writing a manuscript to publish a quality book, and that is why we provide our authors with the necessary tools to produce a professionally polished product.

iUniverse's editorial evaluation shows you what your book needs to look like a professionally-published book.

Editorial Evaluation

Most of our publishing packages include an Editorial Evaluation. This one-of-a-kind assessment from independent publishing professionals provides authors with constructive feedback about their manuscript and educates them in how to write a better book. At the end of the evaluation, authors will receive a recommendation to an editorial specialist. In addition, an Editorial Evaluation enables a manuscript to be considered for iUniverse’s prestigious recognition program, the Editor’s Choice.

Our editorial consultants professionally edit your self-published book, making it into a professional work of literary art.

Editorial Consultant

Following an Editorial Evaluation, iUniverse provides authors with the unique opportunity to speak with a personal editorial consultant. iUniverse editorial consultants are experienced and knowledgeable professionals who will review the editorial evaluation with you, answer your questions, and enroll you in the best editorial services to meet your needs and goals.

Add professional-quality editorial services to your book, giving it professional credibility in the marketplace.

Editorial Services

Typos and grammatical mistakes aren’t the only concerns an author should have when it comes to the quality of his or her book. From sentence-level editing to book doctoring and professional ghostwriting, we offer more than a dozen services to enhance your authentic voice and writing style and increase the professional quality of your book. iUniverse Editorial Services meet the highest standard of excellence, providing an objective set of eyes to ensure manuscripts are clean and concise, saving writers from potential embarrassment later.

iUniverse author Lisa Genova not only found publishing success with her book Still Alice, it became a major Hollywood film starring Julianne Moore.

"Instead of fearfully sticking my novel in a drawer, I moved forward and self-published Still Alice with iUniverse. And the journey that followed and continues has been the ride of my life!"

New York Times Best-Sellers author Lisa Genova
