Developmental Editing

Editing That Brings Out Your Best

Like a fine wine, every novel has its time. Sending a novel to an agent before it’s reached its pinnacle is like drinking an expensive Merlot a year too soon – the result is an underdeveloped taste and an agent who won’t ask for a second look.

You’ve thrown your soul (and possibly years) into finishing your manuscript. Don’t waste your time submitting until you know your manuscript is the best it can be. A solid review by a professional editor can save you years of rejection letters. 

Developmental editing addresses structure, pace, plot, character arc and development, thematic development, description, and dialogue. My developmental editing approach is customized to your needs. You'll receive a comprehensive review of your story strengths and weaknesses and detailed suggestions and examples of any elements that need revising. I specialize in mainstream fiction, women’s fiction, children’s chapter books, middle-grade novels, and young-adult novels. 

Call or e-mail me today. I look forwarding to discussing your editorial needs. Lori Cronwell  503-201-4612
