Professional Rewriting

Professional Rewriting

Do you have a great story to tell but lack essential writing skills? Maybe you have English as a second language, and your writing isn’t always clear. Or perhaps you don’t have the time or the skills to write a polished, professional book — you’re busy, but you’ve written an excellent first draft of a fabulous fiction or nonfiction book. Look no further.

Book Magic will revise your raw manuscript paragraph by paragraph and page by page. We start with a manuscript evaluation, a comprehensive critique that examines content and structure. We look at organization, flow, clarity, redundancy, and references for nonfiction; for fiction, we examine characterizations, background, dialogue, and significant themes, as well as ensuring strong introductions and conclusions. We focus carefully on the message you want to convey, which we determine by a series of conversations on the phone, Skype, or Zoom. Then we deliver a high-level manuscript evaluation with a report indicating precisely what we plan to change in your manuscript and why. We outline book chapters and themes. You review this report with us before we move to the next stage, and we gather your precious input every step of the way.

Then we painstakingly rewrite your first draft until you have a fantastic book. Book Magic will perform advanced copy editing during the rewriting process and check all your facts, such as movie and book references. We involve you in every step of the process so that the book reflects your voice, your message, and your purpose. If we have questions — and we certainly will — we will discuss them with you on the phone or email. (Of course, if you live locally, we would be happy to meet with you in person.)

When you are satisfied with your heavily edited and rewritten draft, we will finish off with a basic proofread, which is outsourced to another professional so that you have a second set of eyes working on your project. The Professional Rewriting Package is the Cadillac choice for people who have a raw draft that needs a significant amount of work before becoming a publishable book. Professional Rewriting is as close to ghostwriting as you can get, but it is considerably less expensive, and your work is much more likely to sound like your own rather than ours because you have provided us with all the basics. We are revising, not writing from scratch. As a result, your rough document transforms into a polished and highly marketable product. And everyone will think that you wrote it unless you tell them otherwise!
