M.J. on Writing: To Hire an Editor or Not to Hire an Editor…That is the Question!

No matter what stage your writing career is in, editing is a step you don’t want to skip! I dusted this blog off (originally posted on This Writer’s Life, 1/12) and decided to share it again. This type of information never gets old! I hope it helps!

  1. Editing is a must Lyn Robertson is one of the best here in Las Vegas; but never asume editing and proofreading are the same unless your contract says so. Editing provides focus, direction, or point of view to name a few, but proofreading is the polish needed to finish your work before sending it to the publisher…

  2. Now that I know what I know, I will never put a book out without an editor – and I mean an editor who does line editing, proofreading, story development – all of it. A “good editor” is priceless!

    • A good editor is also pricey. 🙂
      For those (like me) who can’t afford to hire an editor, I always recommend Self-Editing for Fiction Writers, Second Edition: How to Edit Yourself Into Print by Browne and King. It’s available on Kindle for about $8.00 and paperback for about $12.00. http://amzn.com/0060545690
