Editing is a crucial step in book publishing. Our editors offer authors an honest assessment and direction to help shape and refine your project.

Our “Get Ink'd Package”
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 manuscript will also be reviewed by sophisticated artificial intelligence software to give an additional, impartial analysis.
After each assessment is completed, the author receives a 30-minute one-on-one meeting with a publishing consultant to discuss any feedback, develop an editing Action Plan, and outline the next steps.
$595 (Up to 7,000 words)
The Get Ink'd Package Includes:
1. Your Personal Publishing Consultant
Your publishing consultant is your main contact, providing personalized attention and managing your book project, allowing you to make creative decisions while the team takes care of the details necessary to turn that vision into a reality.
Choosing the right editor to work with is critical. We encourage authors to look at sample edits from each editor before making their decision. Your editor will proofread your manuscript and evaluate it to determine what changes are necessary.
3. Cover Design
Your book’s cover is what people see first — it needs to be eye-catching and grab readers’ interest. Our designers have worked on many No. 1 bestsellers, and our services include cover designs for both eBooks and paperbacks.
4. Interior Design
A book’s cover may be what gets readers to pick it up, but it’s what’s inside that holds their attention. Typesetting is important. The font, type size, margins, leading, and kerning give a book its style and make it easy to read.
5. Distribution Options
Whether you choose hands-on distribution or third-party distribution, ensuring your book is available in brick-and-mortar and e-stores is a critical step. We help you get your book into the hands of more readers.
Without marketing, your book may fall flat, despite its quality. To boost your sales and give you the best chance of success, our marketing experts promote your book using all the most influential channels.
Once your book is published, it’s important to protect your copyright so that no one else can profit from your work. We register your book with the Library of Congress and Copyright.gov.
NOTE: The process starts with our $595 manuscript assessment.
(Assess up to 7,000 words of your manuscript, with detailed feedback.)
