Prepare yourself for an intense round of editing. Substantive editing (a.k.a. developmental, structural, or comprehensive editing) is quite different from copyediting. We’ll dive deep into your manuscript and address any necessary restructuring, trim ineffective scenes, cut repetitive words or ideas, bring point-of-view issues to your attention, and spot plot holes. If sentences need to be reworded, we’ll let you know. Incorrect word use? We’ll suggest a few. Working together with you, we’ll whip your manuscript into shape.
