If you have completed your manuscript, (congratulations!) you need developmental editing before you publish. Nothing is more heartbreaking than to put so much time and effort into writing your book and then not see it all the way through with final editing. Save money and heartache and possible embarrassment down the road by having your work professionally edited now.
You want this work to reflect your expertise, credibility, and your heart. Make sure your message is conveyed clearly. Hire an editor. The return on investment is priceless.
Editing is so much more than proofreading for grammar, typos, and punctuation. A developmental editor ensures clarity, consistency, and continuity of message. Do you feel confident in the structure and organization of your manuscript? Sometimes even moving one paragraph can have a tremendous impact.
Do you fear your chapters are too wordy? Maybe still have some holes? Do you have all the right pieces and are they in the right place? You want a coherent and engaging book. When someone reads this work, they are reading YOU. Is this project ready to be released into the world? Are you putting your best foot forward? If you have any doubt at all, let’s talk.
My clients come to me for finesse and polish. They want to be sure that the book delivers the information and inspiration intended. A good book engages the reader and keeps them with you, page after page. Developmental editing focuses on form and flow.
Corporate clients hire me because they know they write short and technical and want their writing softened. Many clients come to me for cleanup and overhaul. Some just need a little bit of tweaking. We can have a chat and review of your manuscript to determine what level of editing you need. As your editor, I also have resources for book covers, interior layout, publishing, uploading, etc.
Friends and family can be great test readers and sometimes good proofreaders, but they are not professional editors.
