A full developmental edit is a big-picture edit that covers issues such as character development, plot arc, conflict, setting, and more. It includes manuscript edits and editorial queries (which are comments and recommendations about problems spotted in the ms) along with a revision letter (typically three-to-five pages).
This service typically runs about $3,000 to $5,000 for an 80,000 word manuscript. I do not offer this service to new clients, only to those I’ve worked with previously or who have booked a manuscript evaluation first.
