Developmental Editing

Rate starting at $0.03/word

Developmental editing is a manuscript makeover. I reserve this two-round service for fairly new drafts (at least 6 months old) that are in need of major content and structural development. Be prepared to receive a heavy-handed manuscript revamp* that will:

  • provide an honest critique of your book at its current stage

  • look over larger details, like depth of content and sentence structure

  • advise when to cut, add, revise, or restructure content

  • revise/restructure sentences to improve readability and flow

  • suggest ways to improve message, tone, style, and delivery

  • give citation and permissions advice

Along with an edited manuscript, you'll receive a critique letter that compiles all my suggestions, critiques, and comments in one place. You also have the opportunity to hop on a one-hour Zoom call with me between rounds. This is where we can dive into the weeds together and get you ready to complete revisions. This call is completely optional, so don't worry if Zoom is not your thing. We can email instead. :)

*Please be advised that all edits are merely suggestions. You are the author of your book, and you have full control over what edits you choose to implement or not.
