Proof Positive can provide a “big picture” look at your book
We’ll concentrate on your book’s goals, intent, theme, and structure. We ensure that each chapter starts and ends at the right place and supports your main plot and any sub-plots. We’ll flag any areas that need revision, sharpening, expanding, or additional organization or content to give your 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 your theme and argument. A developmental edit works best with early drafts and doesn’t focus on punctuation, grammar, or spelling. This is the edit you need to be sure that your book is “working.” We also work with novellas, short stories, memoirs, essays, and columns.
