Hire the best developmental editors in Dallas


Preparing a manuscript for publication requires vigorous editing. Of the several rounds of editing needed, developmental editing is the most major, as it involves working with a professional to evaluate big-picture elements of your book, like structure, character development, and plot holes. A developmental editor makes sure that your story works, helps you organize scenes in the most intuitive way, and ensures no questions are left unanswered by the time your reader reaches the end of your book.


Our developmental editors in Dallas have worked with traditional publishers and bestselling indie authors alike, and they'll be able to use their knowledge of genre conventions and market trends to help you shape your work into its best self.
