Developmental editing is an over-encompassing process in a manuscript's pre-writing, during-writing, and post-writing. It is an analytical relationship of characterization, plot, story diversions, dialogues, setting, themes, historical background, and chapter structure to make it a cohesive manuscript that gels the reader with the story. For any manuscript, the structural amendments of the discourse happen during the developmental editing process making book editing a vital function for creating an impeccable book.
Our developmental process entails the following:
A story must be in a flow that engages the reader with concise, clear, entertaining and educating language. It's more about the style and tone of the book. Undoubtedly, an ugly structured sentence inhibits the ability of a story to unfold in a more captivating, blossoming, and artistic manner. There's more to line-by-line editing; it fuels the pace of the narrative process, helps in word choice, and deters any logical fallacy in the story. To make the language clear-cut, easy-to-read, and clear, we execute a line-by-line editing process to cut-to-the-chase process.
Our Line Editing Process Entails the following:
As with all the steps involved in the editing process, proofreading is essential to eradicate the errors hidden in the crevices of the potentially best-selling story. It improves the quality of your story delivery, makes the writer and publisher a professional authority, crisscross hasty generalization, and redirects the document to the gest of the book. The process covers all the grammatical, typographical, and formatting issues.
Proofreading is an entirely different process compared to editing. We close-read the document, proof-check homonyms, omit punctuation errors, and improve sentence structure, like run-ons and fragments.
Our Proofreading Process Entails the following:
After a manuscript is ready, we go forward by testing it with beta readers to further enhance the betterment process of the book by looking at the book from various point-of-views to get their critical views about it. Note that the beta reader can be as effective as the alpha reader because of the insight into the genre and critical point-of-view. It helps in getting into the target audience's shoes and analyzing if there are any existing problems in the story's conciseness, flow, dialogues, and structure. Moreover, It helps get reviews if any sentimental, racial, or personal criticism is involved that might offend any audience section.
Our Beta Testing Entails The Following:
As a human fueled by caffeine, whether or not you are writing your first draft or working on your book series, you are bound to make minor editing errors. Editors at the Prime Authors realize that mistakes can happen; hence they are always trying to remedy errors.
Once an order has been confirmed, we send our customers a brief questionnaire about the author's vision for their book, which they must fill. This is to make sure that the authors and the writers are on the same page at all times.
We arrange an interview between the author and a specialized account manager once we receive the brief form. The interviewer guides the author in the direction of a discussion that will take us to the next stage.
This process continues as soon as the interview is recorded. The dedicated account manager then communicates directly with the assigned writer, and an outline or a first draft is created based on the information and the author's requirements.
We provide the first draft or outline to the author for review and comments. If accepted, we'll keep revising the chapters till they're complete. If the author asks for changes or revisions, we'll make them and finish the project on schedule.

Prime Authors helped me write my first book and I can say it was a great experience and I was walked through the process every step of the way. I do recommend prime authors to anyone seeking to have a book written and published. Robby Shadburn
What a great experience I had. Sean Wright and his team walked me through the entire process before I signed up. And once they started working on my manuscript I knew, I am in right hands. They were open to the feedback and responded in timely manner. The cover was awesome and I loved the attention to detail. I am working on my second book and this time I dont have to search for a reliable publisher. Satisfied Author
I have found Prime Authors to be professional and respectful. They listen carefully to my requests and work to focus me in the direction of our goals. We are currently in the production stage of several things. Sometimes these things move slowly and one can get frustrated because we live in a "microwave" culture, but I'm certain that we will arrive at a successful finish. Pamella Russell
