This is the first step to completing a book. A developmental editor examines the overall concept of the book, focusing on both its strengths and areas for improvement. This editor provides feedback on aspects of the manuscript's flow, structure, cohesiveness, story arc, character development, plot structure, and readability, as well as any other issues that may affect the quality of the book. The author submits an unformatted manuscript in electronic format. The critique and feedback is provided in the form of a separate document of analysis and suggestions (typically five to ten pages long), including specific references to the manuscript by chapter and page.
