October editing special! Book a content edit and hand the manuscript in before November 1st and you get a free query/back-of-book blurb critique with it. The standard submission formatting and rates apply. ($1/page – Times New Roman font – Double Spaced)
What is a developmental/content edit? Think of it as boot camp for your book. Your emotional scenes get stronger, your action scenes get fiercer, your prose loses the flab and comes out fab.
Developmental, or content edits are the second stage of editing. After you’ve gone through and made sure you’ve used the same name for your hero, haven’t left any scenes that way [insert fight here], and have done a basic spellcheck you hand your manuscript to a beta reader or editor to find the plot flaws.
Then you give the manuscript to me. I look at pacing, plot, character development, and context within the genre then tell you where things are working and where you need to do some major work. Content edits keep your book from being flabby, slowly paced, or meandering to the point where you lose your readers.
After a content edit your book will need at least one round of revisions (possibly more), and then a line edit to find any grammatical errors or typos.
