Hire the best historical romance developmental editors


Stepping back and viewing your historical romance manuscript after that finished first draft is an unmatched feeling. If your next step is to polish your novel into a diamond, you may want to consider hiring a developmental editor. This type of edit involves looking at the wider picture and identifying problems in your overall structure, pacing, and character building, to then suggest fixes that will take your novel to the next level.


Of course, a historical romance developmental editor’s suggestions can often lead to large scale rewrites, so you need to know that they have the expertise to back up their criticisms. Here at Reedsy, we accept just the top 3% of freelancer applications, so you can trust that your editor has a plethora of experience with historical romance and a passion for their next project.
