With developmental editing, you and I will focus on the big aspects of your manuscript. Some examples of what we could focus on are the overall plot, character development, too much/too little back story, appropriate level of details for setting, too much showing and not enough telling, adhering to reader expectations for the genre, and so on.
Developmental editing is a collaborative process between you and me where we focus on the largest 3-5 concrete issues at a time. You’ll get specific ideas, recommendations, and guidance for how to move your writing to the next level. There are several ways we can go about this process, as described below. If you’re ready to get started or looking for something different, contact me, and together we’ll figure out the best option for you.
For a 70,000-word manuscript, this is $1,050.
