Hire the best business developmental editors


Actualizing your first business book manuscript alone is an accomplishment. But, what now? While you’re undoubtedly an expert in your field, it’s difficult to view the ‘big picture’ of your book objectively after working on it for so long. So, now’s the time to hire a developmental editor. This type of edit involves looking at the wider picture and identifying potential problems in your structure and pacing. A developmental editor will analyze your book overall and decide if it needs revising — this can even lead to intensive rewrites.


But you’re only as good as the team you hire and you’ll need an expert with strong experience to back up their revisions. To find the best in the business, head over to the Reedsy Marketplace. We only accept the top 3% of professional applications, so you can trust that your editor is 100% professional. Sign up for free to request quotes today.
