Manuscript Development


Skill in editing is skill in editorial fluidity, in the art of applying one’s command of language, and command of grammar, to infuse a text with the integrity deserved by the subject matter—and the rhythm and cadence required to keep the reader engaged. Thane & Prose has edited books across an amalgam of subject matter.

Before we begin to edit an author’s manuscript, we allocate preliminary time to independently researching the topics within the texts we take on.

In addition, we devote a significant amount of time directly with the author to better understand the motivation behind their book, the specific paths that led to their findings; and in the case of fiction, what lay behind the curtain that propels the story forward.
