We can help your gems shine and save you paper—not to mention your sanity.

Tiff Clarke HarrisonAngela’s team … coached me on how to craft my story in the way that agents are looking for. I also used Eschler Editing to write my query letter—within 24 hours of sending it, a much sought-after agent requested my manuscript exclusively. Thank you for everything!”

Help Finding Your Agent

Our editors will use their industry savvy to help you properly position your book in the market, find agents that fit your genre and goals, and do the legwork of obtaining all the information you need on what, when, and how to submit to each—all delivered in a done-for-you chart that will also help you track your submission process.

  • Find your top 20 agents: Includes a review of your manuscript/summary and comparable titles, genre-positioning research, a list of which safety-approved agents to focus on first, and coaching on the best strategy for getting your top picks  (plus each agent’s contact info, submission requirements, and similar titles they’ve recently sold)  – $275

Combine your search with a winning query to increase your likelihood of manuscript requests.


  • Write my letter for me: A request-generating query as well as guinea-pig testing on at least two additional editors: the editor who worked on your manuscript,  to ensure we’ve included the biggest draws of your story, and an even-more-objective set of eyes to see how it affects an “outsider” with no familiarity with your story; we’ll make sure your query is stellar from any perspective – $189
  • You penned it? An editor will review your current query and, should it only require a little feedback and proofreading, a discount would apply. Your editor will discuss this with you upon review of the letter.

I had a very positive experience with my query. … Everything was professionally done and to my satisfaction. Shortly after sending the query out, I had several manuscript requests. Many thanks to Eschler Editing for their excellent work!”
