Editing Services: Developmental Edit

Note: prices on this service will increase in 2019. Want to get locked in at 2018 pricing? Book now!

If you’re ready for a full or partial review of your manuscript beyond the first fifty pages, then a Developmental Edit may be what you’re looking for.

My Developmental Edit service includes a chapter-by-chapter analysis of your manuscript’s strengths, opportunities for strengthening, and comments on style and prose mechanics.

Specifically, the analysis will focus on:

  • Concept
  • Character Development
  • Plot / Structure
  • Theme
  • Voice
  • Additional topics covered in the Write With Me and Outline With Me series, as necessary

Aside from this analysis, we’ll discuss the feedback in an hour conversation conducted via Zoom or Skype. This will be your chance to ask questions, and for the two of us to bounce ideas off of one another for what might come next.

This service is available to you for $0.005/word (i.e. $400 for 80,000 words).

Please note that the Developmental Edits do not include in-line comments.

I’m ready to help turn your manuscript up a notch.
Let’s crank it up to eleven here. Contact me at this link to get started now.


Here’s what developmental edits client Tara Ruff had to say about working with me on her manuscript for In the Absence of Sounds.

And here’s Ann Dayleview talking about how working with an editor (yours truly) helped her land her agent!
