Editorial Review

A detailed, unbiased review of your manuscript.

Many writers experience self-doubt, wondering if their writing is good enough to sell to the masses. What you CAN’T trust is the opinions of your friends and family. They will almost always tell you your writing is amazing. And, rarely are they qualified to tell you what needs to be fixed…and what doesn’t.


C. Jones is a professor of English at University of Tennessee Chattanooga and he holds an M.F.A. from Georgia State University.

Order an editorial review from C. Jones and you’ll receive a no-holds-barred, honest opinion of your writing, and a lot more. 

If you’re looking for a fee-based, positive book review that doesn’t help your writing process, and does not improve your manuscript, this is not the service for you.

WARNING: This service is not for authors with fragile egos. If you can’t accept creative criticism, please do not order this service. However, if you want to learn how to improve your writing and, thus, increase your sales, this is for you.

An editorial review is NOT editing.

You will receive a detailed report with specific comments on:

Writing quality

General editing notes (i.e. repeated misuse of punctuation or misuse of specific words, switching from past- to present-tense, etc.)


Sequencing (Examples: Does the order of events make sense to the reader? Are there large breaks in action that make the reader’s mind start to drift? Is the hook at the beginning sufficient to make the reader want to keep reading? This is VERY important when people are reading an excerpt of your book online before buying! Does the ending fall flat?)

You will also receive, of course, specific tips on how to improve your manuscript. Other services have form responses they send to authors with fill-in-the-blank items. Some of them don’t even read the entire book. Clayton offers a unique, detailed, honest review of your entire manuscript.

If you like some of the positive comments he sends, you will, of course, be able to quote him in your future marketing materials.  

C. Jones also offers content editing, line editing, and proofreading services. He specializes in fiction and non-fiction (most of his experience is with Christian books). He has also edited academic dissertations, poetry, and much more. C. Jones also offers web content writing and ghostwriting services.


I’m very impressed with C. Jones. His suggestions are right on target. This version of my book is so much better thanks to C. Jones’ attention. Thanks for recommending C. Jones. He is great to work with.
