I offer freelance developmental editing of adult and young adult fiction.
The purpose of developmental (structural) editing is to make your story the best it could be—it is looking at the overall picture—does the story work?
The manuscript is evaluated for weaknesses in structure, plot, characterization, flow, and tension. The status and stage of your manuscript will determine the amount of time and attention required.
The story must make sense and keep the reader turning the pages.
The goal is to have a completed manuscript that will captivate the reader—hooking them from the first sentence—without sacrificing your unique style and voice.
