Developmental Editing

Developmental editors help writers with their book’s big picture: audience, theme, structure. If you are struggling with the entirety of your work, a developmental editor could be the person to help you clarify your message and put you back on track to completing your book. Collaboration is the key to successful developmental editing. Finding a common language, being good listeners, and having an open mind is essential to make this phase of your author’s journey worthwhile.

After reading your novel once through, I will go through and make note of your most effective writing, as well as discuss any problem areas in world-building, characterization, pacing, story structure, point of view, and shine and buff your own style using both in-manuscript comments and queries and a multi-page letter.
