HELLO! I AM
I help authors develop their ideas into credible stories.
I am a Delhi-based editor and writer. As an ex-commissioning editor with one of India’s oldest book publishers and distributors, I understand the needs of a traditional publisher, an in-house editor or even an agent. I love to identify and nurture potential. Let’s work together to build a credible story!
The simplest way to understand a manuscript assessment is from the term itself. A manuscript assessment is an assessment in the form of an editorial letter or a report.
As the term suggests, it is an in-depth edit that helps develop the work into what the author wants it to become. It is also called substantive editing and is sometimes replaceable with line editing.
A book proposal is a blueprint of your work that shows the publisher what your idea entails. Imagine going for an interview with requisite skills but poor communication skills. Will you get hired?
