All work must be up to MAP’s editorial and professional standards to be allowed in our catalog including: editorial, content, artwork, properly secured permissions and illustrations. In order to determine this, we require an evaluation report. This report is the first step of the editorial process. We return to you a full one page report, identifying the strengths and weakness of the work. The editorial evaluation is also used to estimate the cost of performing the editing. The cost to do the evaluation is $145, which should be submitted with your document for review. If you are choosing the Indie Author Plan, this evaluation is optional.
