The developmental edit is about improving the core of the manuscript. It is sometimes called a ‘content’ or ‘substantive’ edit and its definition varies from editor to editor. At Prince, this is the most intensive service offered next to the Full Package option.

I will be working on the development of your characters, plot, and themes while reviewing the overall coherence of your manuscript and its purpose. I will also provide suggestions and some research notes that may correct any outstanding issues.

The world and characters that you have created matter to me because I believe they are the heart of your manuscript. Without those elements, there is no story to be told.
