For developmental editing on a whole book, Lynne charges a per-word rate, providing in-line edits and big-picture feedback in a separate document. This is both a developmental edit and a line-edit. She marks up the manuscript, and writes a comprehensive letter about character development, storytelling craft, themes, voice, plot and more. She can promise a six-week turnaround. The package includes one phone call, so the writer can ask questions once they’ve gone through the notes.
