Everything Edit Package

Comprehensive Editing

This is a comprehensive editing package and the best option if you plan to contact agents and publishers or self-publish and want your book to stand out from the crowd. With the Everything Edit, you'll get two to three rounds of editing: developmental editing, line editing, and copyediting. Each package includes a discount.

Here's what we'll address in each round:

round 1: developmental editing

  • the "hook"
  • plot and structure (for fiction)
  • argument and analysis (for nonfiction)
  • character or content development
  • setting and description
  • point of view and dialogue
  • voice and style
  • narrative pacing
  • telling versus showing
  • common language issues
  • marketability
