PART 1: OBTAIN A SUBSTANTIVE EDIT
PART 1: OBTAIN A SUBSTANTIVE EDIT OF YOUR MANUSCRIPT
Once you have registered for A Novel Approach Second Draft, email a WORD copy of your manuscript, and include a list of questions that you want answered during the Substantive Edit. Be as specific as possible about which aspects of the Second Draft process excite you the most and where you are feeling reticent.
After a careful reading of your manuscript, a Substantive Edit is conducted and a detailed report prepared.
It combines responses to your concerns, supports the existing strengths in your manuscript, and makes recommendations that will make it even stronger.
A meeting will then be arranged at a mutually agreeable time and place where the Substantive Edit and recommendations will be discussed with you in detail.
All of your questions will be answered and a copy of the Substantive Edit delivered to you at the meeting.
Once the Substantive Edit process is complete, you can decide whether to continue with Part Two of A Novel Approach Second Draft or complete the rewrite on your own.
The substantive edit fee is $960.00 +HST for manuscripts up to 80,000 words.
If your manuscript is larger than 80,000 words, an additional cost of .015 cents/word is also applicable.
(Example: for a manuscript of 100,000 words the additional cost would be 20,000 x .015 = $300 + HST) We will contact you about the methods available to pay the additional amount once you have registered.
