Developmental Editing

What is it?

Developmental editing looks at the plot, characters, world-building, style, and pacing of a story. It can be done to fully developed plot outlines, and partial or completed manuscripts.

Why is it necessary?

-To improve the quality of a story and eliminate plot holes, inconsistencies, and other elements that might distract/dissuade readers

-To prepare manuscripts for line editing

Who is it for?

-Authors who struggle with pacing

-Publishers working with authors/ghostwriters new to the romance genre

What's included?

-A tracked changes version of the document commenting on and suggesting fixes for issues with the story arc, character development, romance development, pacing, repetition, as well as style, show/tell, and world-building. I will also comment on the book's overall strengths and weaknesses and how to eliminate the latter.

-A review of the document once the writer has made the suggested changes and rewrites, to assess if the book is ready for line editing.
