Hire the best developmental editors in Cleveland, Ohio


Experienced authors know that an editor is essential to the process of publishing a book — and that a developmental editor is perhaps the most important of all. The role of the development edit is distinct because of its in-depth focus on the structure, plot, and characters of a story. However, the scope of a developmental editor's work can also encompass tone and consistency of prose, which means that their guidance is key to the success of your book. A great developmental editor can transform a “just so-so” book into a title-of-the-year novel.
