Book editing is an essential part of preparing a final draft. It involves different types of editing according to the extent of changes required to ensure perfection. Developmental editing deals with broad changes related to the theme and story and targets issues like individual sentences, characterization, plot holes, and the overall structure of your book. There are other forms of editing as well, such as copyediting, structural editing, and editorial assessment, each of which deals with consistency and flow so that your story becomes well-structured and engaging to be shown to publishers and read by the audience.

Developmental editing addresses issues that determine how well the story has been conveyed. It focuses on the elements of storytelling to refine your ideas and make sure they fit right into the narrative of your story. From story arcs to character development to the overall structure and style of writing, developmental editing focuses on the big picture and prepares a manuscript for further editing.
Copyediting, also called line editing, looks at a manuscript from the perspective of language, grammar, punctuation, and choice of words. It is done to make sure that your draft is free from typos and inconsistencies so that it appears professional, polished, and readable by publishers and agents. Copyediting is done only after the developmental work of a book draft or manuscript has been dealt with.
