Developmental Editing & Strategy
When you need reliable, honest & quick insight into your manuscript, proposal, or book plan
Developmental Editing: Manuscript
When your manuscript is complete (over 60K words), you can send it my way for a developmental edit. I’ll dive in looking for the highlights and challenges, narrative development, consistent voice, clear sense of reader, and a range of other big-picture concerns.
Our goal in this developmental edit is to ensure that you’ve checked all the big boxes before sending your ms. off to an agent, publisher, or a line or copyeditor.
A developmental edit gives you the confidence that your book is saying and doing exactly what you think it is saying and doing.
Rush rate available at $.01/word per week.
Seeing the big Picture & Setting a Plan
Expect an extensive edit letter with strategies and guidance for writing forward. You’ll also get in-line comments on the first & lest chapter (up to 40pp) and we’ll wrap it up with a 60-min strategy call.

Writers who choose coaching after a dev. edit receive $150 credit towards any coaching package.
Developmental Editing: Proposal
Your proposal is a unique and unwieldy document. They need to do so much and be so adaptable as you pitch your book to many different types or agents or publishers. The nuances are many, and the target so precise.
As you know, what one press wants is never the same as the next one, so the stronger your foundation, the better your ability to adapt and reach your goals.
If you have a complete proposal draft and want feedback on its highlights and challenges, and plans for next steps, I’m here for you.
