Developmental Edit - RATE:  $12 per 1,000 words 

The best time for a developmental edit is after you've written your manuscript and self-edited it at least once for the large structural elements like the story arc, character arc, logical flow of scenes, etc. A good editor will point out inconsistencies, dangling story threads, scenes that fall flat and how they could be more impactful, overuse of dialogue tags, passive writing, telling rather than showing, repetitive sentence structure, syntax or grammar issues, point out filler words, and so much more. Good editors offer suggestions on ways to improve your book and often provide sample rewrites of a paragraph to demonstrate what they mean. This is an indispensable service and if your editing budget is tight, spend your money on this one.
