Congratulations on writing your book! If you're here, you must be ready (or planning for) the next step in getting your book published, and professional editing is a crucial step.
We spend so much time with our manuscripts that they become a part of us. They're an extension of our imagination and maintain a piece of us within them. After laboring over perfecting the plot and setting and getting feedback from alphas, betas, and friends, there's nothing worse than realizing readers are getting distracted from your amazing story with typos.
Finding the right editor is important, and it will behoove you to reach out to the person you want to help you. Set aside a short excerpt to send in and ask for a sample of their editing work. Many offer sample edits for free or at a very low cost, and it's a worthwhile investment to know who you'll be working with and how they treat your work.
A professional editor does more than correct mistakes. We are a fresh pair of eyes, eyes trained to work with written English. We offer an objective point of view and won't hesitate to tell you when something needs to be reworked. Save yourself the time and find an editor you're comfortable with enough that you move on to your next task while they are combing your manuscript.
Correcting mistakes is what you're hiring us for, but a good editor will also help you improve your language use and writing skills. We want your books to be amazing too, and we know you have the voice to do it.
Manuscript editing is a big step in getting your book published, and I want to be there for you. I have years of experience working with the indie authors and editing manuscripts and will continue to give what I have to the community.
Are you ready for the editing part of your writing journey? Send me an email or reach out to me on Facebook. I'd love to chat with you about your book!
