Finding the right editor can be tough.
You want someone you can trust with your work and your self-confidence, someone who knows what to look for and how to coach you in a positive way.
When you’re investing so much in your stories, you want to know your editor is tenacious about rooting out problem sections, thorough in her approach, and confident enough to tell you what your story needs without crushing your ego.
And she better be able to work on a deadline too, because your deadlines become her deadlines.
And wouldn’t it be great if she specialized in your genre?
All of that? It’s a lot to ask. It’s a lot to look for.
But finding the right editor for you is not an impossible task.
In my e-course on How to Avoid the Top Five Newbie Author Mistakes, I offer a worksheet you can use when you’re vetting your editor candidates. Check out the article here, then sign up at the bottom to start receiving the e-course by email. You’ll get the editor-vetting worksheet on Day 2.
Choosing the right editor is SO IMPORTANT! Whether that person is me or someone else doesn’t matter—what matters is that your stories get the respect, expertise, and timely work they deserve.
