Developmental Editing (Fiction and Non-Fiction)
Need extra eyes on your manuscripts? Proof Positive can help you to keep on schedule and be a partner that you can trust. We concentrate on the author’s goals and intent and the book’s theme and structure. We ensure that each chapter starts and ends at the right place and supports the author’s main plot and any sub-plots. We’ll flag any areas that need revision, sharpening, expanding, or additional organization or content to give the book a consistent voice and tone. For works of fiction, we look at pacing, tension points, sensory descriptions, and character arcs. For non-fiction, we make sure that each chapter supports the theme and argument. We can also provide line editing, copyediting, and proofreading as needed.
