From idea to story

Developmental Editing


Your story matters. If you’re here, you’re probably ready to transform your diamond in the rough into a story people will lovefilled with lovable, relatable characters and a captivating plot arc that keeps them engaged until the very end.

I hold a diploma in Professional Writing, and while I’m new to developmental editing, I have set my prices to reflect this. I take pride in providing high-quality feedback, clear communication, and a quick turn-around.

I love books and I want to see indie authors succeed in a challenging market. My goal is to understand and maintain the heart of your story and voice, while aiding in the development of characters, plot and setting. I am confident that you won’t be disappointed with my services.

Let’s work together to make your manuscript the best it can be.

My Approach: Crafting your manuscript

My process is designed to enhance your manuscript while preserving your unique voice, focusing on the core aspects that make a story unforgettable. I will:

  • Character Development: Deep dive into the heart and soul of your characters, ensuring they are living, breathing people with desires, fears, and arcs that resonate with readers.

  • Plot Structuring: Ensure you have crafted a plot that guides readers through many twists and turns, building suspense and delivering satisfying resolutions.

  • Pacing Analysis: Confirm your story unfolds in a great rhythm, mixing fast-faced action with reflection to keep readers hooked from the first page to the last. The goal is to never bore or overwhelm your readers.

  • Dialogue Refinement: Broadly sharpen your characters’ voices, making sure every conversation feels authentic and impactful, driving both character development and plot progression.

Your story will be read twice through. First for me to understand the scope of the story, then to assess its needs. You will receive a multi-page analysis of your story, along with tracked changes (Microsoft Word) with detailed feedback.

My Fees

My fee is .006 per word, in Canadian dollars. This fee is well below average given the amount of work involved. I’m offering this low price at this time because I am newer to developmental editing professionally.

It's time
