Developmental or Substantive Edit

This edit is the most in-depth assessment I provide. It includes, but is more extensive than the Manuscript Evaluation. I read your work a second time focusing on structure down to the scene level, characterization, continuity, theme, setting, and pacing at the chapter level. I include in-line comments in addition to the edit letter. My forte is untangling thematic issues and the logic of a story’s progression. 

Included in this Edit:

  • 2 Full Reads 

  • 2 1-hour Consultations

  • 25+ page Edit Letter 

  • Full in-line comments

Standard turnover and cost is one month at $0.03/ word. If you need my feedback faster, I am happy to accommodate you for an additional charge of $0.008/word.
