Developmental Editing

{developmental editing}

Sometimes your story isn’t what you want it to be. I can help.

What is developmental editing?

Developmental editing focuses on craft elements such as plot, characters, themes, and structure. It can be as simple as patching up a few plot holes or as complex as overhauling an entire novel series. I can help you determine what level of editing is right for you.

My goal is to preserve your story’s essence while polishing it to be the best version of itself. Together, we’ll find a direction that fits your vision and solidifies your fiction.

My developmental editing service includes:

  • Two reading passes (more passes can be purchased if desired)
  • Comments throughout the manuscript
  • A detailed report at the end of the project with recommended changes
  • My advice and feedback on your ideas for improving the story

Because every story is unique along with its creator, please tell me about your needs for a quote.
