Home / Developmental Editing
As the term suggests, it is an in-depth edit that helps develop the work into what the author wants it to become. It is also called substantive editing and is sometimes replaceable with line editing.
As part of a developmental edit, you get a free 45-minute call that helps clarify pending doubts.
This should be done after the edits have been seen by the author. Questions should be specific, not general. I explain in manuscript assessment what kind of questions should be asked. It is best to email me the questions and schedule the call so I am better prepared to answer them. Please note: all questions should be specific to the manuscript. For unrelated queries, such as about book proposals, submissions, which agent or publisher to pitch, a separate fee for consultation will be quoted.
