Developmental editors (DEs) are concerned with the structure and content of your book. If your manuscript lacks focus, a DE will help you find the right direction.
I feel like I have the right direction now, but a good DE will make sure every chapter, paragraph and sentences leads your reader to the ultimate message of your book.
This is the first time I’ve used a DE. I’m looking forward to her help and feedback.
I’m also looking forward to the extra 8 days it will give me to write a few more chapters of the rough draft that will help serve the reader.
