This is usually the final stage in editing. If you've already edited your work, you might still need a second set of eyes to catch typos and errors in spelling, syntax, grammar, and punctuation.
I will help polish your work so that it's ready for publication.
A step beyond proofreading, copyediting includes:
checking for consistency in spelling, capitalization, numerals, and hyphenation
checking for continuity in story (including character description, plot, and setting)

A developmental edit addresses plot, pacing, characterization, and setting. You will get detailed feedback specifically geared towards your goals. I'll give you a sense of what works, and what doesn't, and help you come up with solutions.
The goal is to help you make your work better while maintaining your own unique voice.
I will help you write, rewrite, or finish your novel.
If you've finished a manuscript but aren't completely happy with it, I'll help you get it to where you want to be. If a chapter or the whole book needs to be rewritten, I'll walk you through it. If you're struggling to complete a draft, I'll be there to help you fill in the gaps. If you have an outline and can't quite figure out how to turn it into a book, I'll work with you chapter by chapter to make it real.
Depending on your needs and both of our schedules, this can include correspondence via email or phone calls.
On a budget? Me, too! I'm happy to work something out with you!
