Developmental Editing

When the first draft is done, it's time to step back for a hard look.  You need to know if your story hangs together, where it can be strengthened, where it loses steam, and if your characters are compelling.  This service is for you.  I will also look at subplots, the over-all structure in relation to the story's genre, pacing, emotional punch, and world-building.

This one-off package includes:​

  • an hour-long initial consultation by phone, Google Meet, or Discord so you can share your vision, and I can learn your focus and goals for the work

  • a deep-dive read-through focusing on plot, subplots, structure, characters, and genre trappings

  • creation of a chapter-by-chapter book map to help you navigate any revisions needed

  • an editorial letter addressing global issues and triumphs

  • a wrap up phone, Meet or Discord convo to discuss any questions you might have.

Pricing for this package is dependent on manuscript length and overall shape.  Please request a quote for pricing on your specific project.

If you're looking for more polish than structure, Line Editing might be for you.
