Editors

One absolute must when publishing a book, whether through self-publishing or when looking for a literary agent, is to have the manuscript thoroughly edited.

Skipping the editing step is showing a lack of professionalism and a lack of respect for the intended readership.

Guess what! If we do not respect our readership, they will not respect us either, so let’s have our manuscripts edited before launching them in the world.

Look in the comment section to find book editors, visit their site or contact them to choose the best one for you.

To editors: Please post a link to your website and contact details and  add a word about your specialty as a comment below.

    I’ve been a professional editor for over 11 years.

    I edit:
    Fiction and nonfiction (APA, MLA, and Chicago styles).
    Academic and nonacademic material.
    Christian books and non-Christian books.

    Basically, I do it all!

    Oh, and I’ve self-published two of my own books, so I can offer advice and tips to anyone who might need help with the process. Contact me today!
