Bring Your Best Story to Life
Why a Book Editor?
What a writer intends and what a reader experiences are often out of alignment. Narrowing this gap is the job of an editor. Guided by our standard of brilliance, every one of our editors at RTC is curious, caring, and collaborative; customizing our signature process to meet your needs and ensure your story is shared in the most exceptional way.
We take pride and honor that you are putting your story into our hands for refinement. Our client service team gets to know you in order to match you with an editor. At your first meeting, you and your editor will talk about your story, goals, and intentions. That will be a guide for your new partnership in order to finalize your story and, if needed, elevate your narrative in new ways.
What Happens in a Manuscript Analysis?
Your editor will conduct an in-depth review of your book, and it goes beyond what you may expect. A Round Table Companies editor will explore our seven key readership qualities that include Voice, Tone, and Structure, plus Rhythm, Readability, Likeability, and Intimacy. They will uncover areas of your story that are most compelling and those that may be more challenging for the reader.
What Happens after the Analysis?
When you meet with your Round Table Companies editor to go over the analysis, you will have an important conversation about the next steps. There may be areas of your manuscript that need to be touched up, or some of the narrative that needs attention. You and your editor will work through the best way to create your final manuscript. When you are ready, we can move to the next steps in the publishing process.
Our editor at RTC was able to see things seven other editors overlooked. If you’re looking for someone to help you birth a book and get it out the door, look no further.
What questions should I be asking?
When writing your book, we recommend knowing the answers to these six questions to ensure your book takes you where you want to go.
