All novelists, need help turning a rough first draft into a more cohesive, coherent, and polished manuscript.

But how does that happen?

Through developmental editing.

Unlike line editing and proofreading, which focus on grammar and mechanics, as well as the style and tone of your sentences, developmental editing addresses big-picture problems such as:

  • Readers aren’t connecting to characters
  • Plot holes
  • Uneven or nonexistent character development
  • pacing issues
  • Boring bits
  • Lack of tension
  • Unclear conflict

To avoid these problems (and more!) it’s wise to seek out the services of a developmental editor.

I provide developmental editing feedback on:

  • Completed drafts
  • Unfinished drafts
  • Single chapters

My feedback is always personalized and guided by your biggest writing weakness and concerns. Not sure if I’m the right editor for you? Get to know me in one of two ways:

  • A FREE 30 initial interview where we discus your writing weaknesses, concerns, and goals for the draft.
  • A FREE edit of the first ten pages (double spaced) of your work in progress.

This way, you get personalized feedback that not only helps fix your draft, but also makes you a better, more confident writer!
