Completed the first manuscript of your Christian book and wondering what to do next? Consider hiring a developmental editor.

If you know that, you'll know how important it is to hire a Christian developmental editor with years of knowledge in their craft to look at the wider picture and identify potential problems in your structure, characterization, and pacing.


This can often prompt large scale rewrites, so you need assurance of their expertise — and Reedsy can give you that.
