A developmental edit, also called a content edit or a structure edit, is a focused assessment of your book paying attention to key craft elements such plot, pacing, characterization, and more.
The edit will be a two-pass read of the manuscript (two full reads of your manuscript) that includes an editorial letter and comments marked in track changes in your manuscript. I will read and assess your book as an editor with thorough and in-depth feedback.
Typically, a developmental edit will include an editorial letter that will run three to ten pages in length and comments made inside your manuscript in Track Changes.
Each manuscript will receive a free sample edit with a personalized bid for service. The sample edit will include the first five pages.
