Developmental Editing

This is big-picture editing which covers plot, characterization, dialogue, pacing, flow, scene-crafting, dramatic structure, general appeal and overall technique. Other considerations may include refining of hook, point of view, suspense, readability and climax.

Author's style and voice will be addressed as well as what's working and what's not.

A developmental edit often goes hand in hand with a Line Edit and proofreading.

When you purchase Developmental Editing, you will receive a manuscript along with comments, suggestions, additions and deletions (using track changes).

Note: All editing must be scheduled and will require a substantial amount of time. Manuscripts will be edited as the editor's schedule permits. Minimum  time required for this edit ing is 9 weeks. A substantial fee will be required to shorten editing time. Please talk to your API representative about rush editing fees.

Looking Great In Print!
