Developmental Editing – Who is it for?

You have written your first draft and then taken the time to do a round or two of self-edits. Now, your manuscript is ready for thorough and in-depth editing.

A developmental edit focuses on the heart of your book—the story. I will ensure that your story is strong and vital to the plot and characters. Use developmental edit to completely overhaul your manuscript by tightening the storyline, overall plot, and sub-plots.

Price: $500 per book flat (Package offers available for duology and trilogy)*
