What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Having an outside opinion of your book can make the difference between getting it read and having it land in the "no" pile at a book publisher or literary agent. Making sure your book is copyedited also makes a difference, because mistakes--whether misplaced commas, typos, point-of-view errors, narrative gaps or worse--call you out as an amateur. When you're ready for a professional book editor to read your manuscript, know that you're not giving up control of your words or story; you're enhancing the manuscript so that it can be the best book it can be. Working together, editor and writer should expect to set reasonable deadlines that allow enough time for reading, conversation and analysis, making changes on the manuscript and rereading.
