Services

Idle Sky provides a range of services for writers both local and international.

Have you completed your manuscript?

Before a manuscript is ready to begin the publishing process, it is advisable to have your work undergo an editorial assessment.

What will an editorial assessment provide?

Think of the assessment as a pre-publishing book review. You will be provided with overall constructive feedback of your story: characters, themes, settings, dialogue…

Also, if there are any plot holes or inconsistencies with the content and flow of your story, this will be highlighted, along with suggestions on how you can reconstruct or reformat ideas, settings etc.

*AN EDITORIAL ASSESSMENT DOES NOT REPLACE THE NEED FOR AN EDITOR. IT SIMPLY PREPARES YOUR MANUSCRIPT FOR THE PUBLISHING PROCESS.

Ready to have your manuscript assessed? Idle Sky provides this service at only $0.02 per word

  1. EDITING

Let’s face it… writers are busy persons. And after spending months crafting your story and ideas, mistakes in grammar and content can easily be overlooked.

Why hire a professional editor? First of all, it would mean having a fresh pair of eyes to review your manuscript.

What about being objective? Of course, you wrote the story and you love your story. So do your family and friends. They think your book is amazing! And it may be rightly so.

But…

Did they shy away from telling you that certain paragraphs just did not flow well? Did they hesitate to inform you of clichés that would have been better omitted?

A professional editor will critique your work honestly and help you shape and shine your ‘diamond in the rough’.

Again, writers are busy. Hey, you already have spent countless hours penning your story. Why not save yourself some time afterward, by allowing an editor to read, read and re-read your work? Not only will you save time, but also the frustration of revising your story.

And don’t forget, you will be hiring a professional editor. You are paying for his/her expertise. A professional editor will not only correct mistakes on your manuscript, but will also help you to improve and refine your own writing.
