Editing Process: Summary
Our editing services are personalized to suit your unique needs.
If you agree that it’s a great match, a test edit and a consultation call is scheduled between you and the editor. The conversation helps the editor determine which kind of edit will benefit you most.
It’ll signal the beginning of a productive, successful relationship between you and your editor.
Editing Process: In-Depth Review
Finding your ideal match in an editor is the most important step. We take many factors into account:
- Your genre and synopsis
- Your writing style
- Your personal rapport with the editor.
All these components go into finding your editor. Even editors who have experience in the same genre differ in terms of taste, interest in humorous memoirs vs. didactic memoirs, plot driven vs. character driven narratives, and an eagerness to work with authors who are earlier on in their development or authors who are more experienced.
Here are the steps that will ensure you get the right edit:
Fill out an online form and upload a sample of your manuscript.
Your recommended editor receives your profile, along with a draft of your manuscript, to decide if your narrative resonates with them. This part is critical.
The magic between an author and an editor happens when the editor genuinely appreciates the author’s work.
A test edit and a consultation call is scheduled between you and your editor. This allows you to establish a rapport. It also helps the editor understand your primary concerns about the manuscript.
You receive a proposal with a detailed explanation of an edit that’s tailored to your manuscript and your goals.
It includes three package options and follow-up time with your editor.
Spoiler alert: You’ll cancel all your plans on the day your edited package is delivered. All you’ll want to do is sit down and devour it!
NYBE has designed its editing services to benefit authors at every stage of their development. Your editor will recommend the edit that’s right for you.

“I think the editorial input from Caroline was spot on and incorporated nearly all of it with ease. The parts meant to help add depth were especially appreciated. She is very likable in conversation. Also our joint experience in fashion and retail brought an added dimension to the work. Thank you for your very good recommendation.” — Diane Courtney
