Ten Questions Every Author Should Ask a Prospective Editor

Writing a book is a big deal. I get it. You've spent hours, days, weeks, months on your book and can't wait to get it out into the world, right?

Let's not toss it up on Amazon just yet.

Remember those hours, days, weeks, and months you spent on your book? You've spent more time with your book than you've spent with most of your friends. (I mean, probably.) It's almost like your CHILD. They don't call it a "book baby" for nothing!

So why settle for less than putting your best possible book out into the world?

"But, wait," you say. "Isn't editing a book expensive? I'm doing this on nights and weekends and am barely paying my bills with my day job! With the cover design, ads, shipping costs, proof copies, etc., I don't have the money to spend on this!"

Sure. Publishing a book is expensive. But would it cost you more if you got several 1-star reviews stating how poor the grammar was or pointed out the myriad of glaring punctuation errors?

That would be devastating for the book you worked so hard on to have its name dragged through the mud and to have your reputation tarnished before you even have a chance to build a good one.

I know you don't want that, and I don't want that for you, either. I want the story you worked on for so long to SHINE. To present its best face to the world. To have the technical details like syntax, punctuation, and spelling fall into the background and have your amazing story take center stage.

This is where editing comes in.

It can be confusing; I get it. There are different types of editing. Some editors charge per hour, some per page, some per word. Some can do it in a week, some need at least a month. Some look at the overall story, some look at the details.

Here's the good news.

I've created a mini ebook JUST FOR YOU to help you sort through all the confusing details and simplify the process.
