Got a manuscript (full or partial) that you’ve been working on, hoping to get it published (either commercially or through a subsidy publisher)?
Have you shown it to friends and family who all said it’s great?
Are you wondering if it’s good enough to get published? Or maybe you’ve already sent it to one or more publishers or agents and had it
rejected . . . and you’re not sure why.
We can help!
The best thing you can do for your manuscript is hire a professional freelance editor. A good editor can help you:
- determine whether your concept is marketable to commercial publishers
- point out the manuscript’s overall strengths and weaknesses
- figure out how to capitalize on the strengths and fix the weak areas
- learn the writing techniques today’s professional authors use
- get rid of typos and other errors you may have missed
- polish the punctuation, usage, grammar, and spelling (using the industry-standard guidelines)
- make your manuscript shine!.
Want something basic?
An overall critique will provide you with an evaluation of your writing strengths and weaknesses, encouraging comments on what’s working, personalized suggestions for improvement, assistance in applying professional writing techniques, formatting tips, and practical ideas for how to polish your writing.

Looking for more?
Writing for publication can be a lonely pursuit. It can also be confusing and often discouraging. You want more than just an editor telling you what’s wrong with a particular manuscript. You need someone to come alongside you, catch the vision you have for your writing, and be passionate about helping you learn the craft and hone your skills. You need a writing mentor!
A writing mentor can provide you with the training and encouragement to pursue your dream until it comes to pass. A Christian writing mentor will pray with you and for you, and ask God to open doors so that His will for you and your manuscript will be realized. A Christian writing mentor will help you balance your personal and professional priorities, and even pray for your family and other concerns.
Hoping to do a little less work?
If you have an idea for a book you’d like to write, but don’t really want to learn all the writing techniques to make it happen, you may need a ghostwriter, coauthor, or collaborator–someone who’s skilled and experienced in writing for publication and can take your ideas and notes and turn them into a book manuscript.
Christian Editor Connection will match the details of your specific project with our database of screened professional editors and find those who offer what you’re looking for. We will forward your request to these specially selected editors, and those who are interested and available will contact you. You may check out these editors’ websites, correspond with one or more of them, find out what their rates are, even request a sample edit or references if you like.
