Professional Editing?

 

I had every intention of submitting to publishing houses when I first began the process of seeking a freelance developmental editor. To me it just made sence to have an experienced professional review my manuscript before trying to pitch it.

The idea of  self publishing Rise didnt really resonate with me until after it was copyedited… At that point I realized I wanted to maintain complete creative control over the project.

I also wanted to make sure Rise was error free and so off to the proofreaders it went.

Hiring freelance editors was a worthwhile investment and I am looking forward to working with some of the same editors on “Lost” in the near future.

4 one word reasons why I hired professional editors for “Rise”

Experience

Objectivity

Accuracy

Reassurance
