A. High-Level Review, Actionable Assessment, Amazing Value
Izzard Ink is pleased to offer a professional and detailed manuscript assessment that will help authors understand the next steps in getting their manuscript published.
Starting at $500, artificial intelligence and two independent editors, with years of experience in major publishing houses, will answer that burning question, ‘is it ready to be published?’
The assessment is a first step to get a professional review of where your manuscript stands. It will tell you what kind of editing your manuscript needs, how it could be improved, where it fits into the marketplace, and whether or not it’s ready for the larger investment of publishing.

Our Three-Step Process for Reviewing Your Manuscript
Each manuscript assessment is individually reviewed and customized by our team of editors in a three-step process. Here’s what you get:
Two experienced editors will assess your manuscript and point out the good and any not-so-good points of your manuscript. The review offers specific examples and tips on how it could be improved. It recommends editing next steps and plots a clear path forward for the manuscript.
For the low price of just $500, you get 7-10 hours of intensive work by top-tier editors reviewing your manuscript. We even include an analysis by unbiased artificial intelligence software.
After the assessment is completed by the editors, we’ll set up a 30-minute, one-on-one meeting, allowing you to hear their insights first-hand, give your feedback, and work together with a publishing consultant to develop an action plan for moving forward.
EDITING ACTION PLAN
The one-on-one meeting will give you the feedback you need to either move forward with editing and publication or, if necessary, to revise your manuscript yourself. Either way, the team at Izzard Ink will give you all the tools you need, without any pressure.
The process also provides a thorough understanding of what it’s like to work with Izzard, and a chance to decide if we’re the right fit before making a larger investment. If not, we understand and wish you much success. There’s no pressure, and we’re just as interested in making sure it’s a good fit and that authors are comfortable with our process.
