When Should You Begin Working With an Editor?
Perhaps you have a great idea for a book—maybe one that has been rolling around inside your mind and heart for years. Or you may have developed an outline, written an introduction or a drafted a few chapters. You may have a complete manuscript—perhaps a rough first draft—or your manuscript may have been read and critiqued in writers’ groups or by respected colleagues or friends.
At any of these stages in the process of writing a book, a professional editor can be a great resource to help you create a book that fulfills your vision, will resonate with your target audience, and has the best chance of being noticed and appreciated in the marketplace.
