Memoir, Nonfiction, Novel, or Collection.
You've worked hard.
Give it the professional attention it deserves.
When you don’t know what to do next, a manuscript evaluation will help.
I perform a holistic review of the book looking at these elements:
The written evaluation explains the points above, provides guidance, suggests next steps, and includes a 5-10 page sample developmental edit at scene level. We review the findings together.
Done with rewrites? Ready for a quality check? Here’s how a developmental edit can help.
First, I review the structure, character development, and point of view, just like the manuscript evaluation above. If these holistic elements are in place, then I continue at scene level reviewing:
The result will be a professionally-written report of the findings, feedback in the manuscript, guidance, and next steps.
*NOTE: I don't believe in charging for scene-level edits throughout a book if character or structure issues need to be resolved first. In this situation, I will provide a manuscript evaluation for discussion, and together we'll determine next steps. Fees will be adjusted accordingly.
