Introduction

Handing your writing over to an editor can be a terrifying experience.

But it doesn’t have

to

be

.

I understand the fear—I really do. In addition to my main work as an editor, I’ve also been writing for many years now, so I know exactly what it feels like to pour your heart and soul onto a page, to spend hours and hours crafting something, getting it just right … and then hand it off to someone who has the power to rip it to shreds—and your ego along

with

it

.

If you’re a first-time writer just learning the ropes, that fear is probably looming HUGE

right

now

.

And even if you’re a seasoned author, you may have had some unhappy editorial experiences that make you want to throw your word processor into a dumpster and just take up llama farming instead….

I’ve heard some horror stories, and I’m sure you

have

too

.

But like I said, it doesn’t have to be that way. Honest.

I’ll show you, the writer, how to climb into the driver’s seat and stay there while you search for a good editor who meets your needs.

And I’ll show you how to be an amazing client during the whole process, from Hmmm… I think this could use a second set of eyes to OMG, thank you! This is perfect! Start the presses!

Here’s what you’ll learn:

Why you actually (really, truly, honestly) need an editor to look at your stuff

How to determine what kind of work needs to be done to your project, from a light proofread to a heavier edit (a checkup vs. open-heart surgery, if

you

will

)

How and where to look for a qualified editor

How to pick an editor who will work with you, and has the

right

"

feel

"

How the hiring process works: what to ask your prospective editor—and what they will

ask

you

How to be an awesome client

What to do when you get your edited

manuscript

back
