Editing - Developmental

Developmental editing—one of my passions and one of my strengths—focuses on your work’s content, overall structure, organization, and other global elements and takes place before copy editing.

Whether your manuscript is fiction or nonfiction, as your developmental editor, I deliver a detailed revision plan for you to consider when you prepare your next draft. The plan includes a description of the manuscript’s strengths and weaknesses and suggestions for enhancing the work. The comments are organized by category and relative importance to the work. Specific examples are cited by page, paragraph, and line for easy reference. Conversations between author and editor typically follow delivery of the revision plan. Please see my work collection for more detailed information relating to developmental editing for fiction and nonfiction books.

As a full-service editor, I also offer copy editing and query letter and book proposal editing and writing.
