Finding the right editor for my story

– Editing is a fine art. You want to choose someone with skill.

– Relationship is important. You want someone you can relate to.

– Experience with your topic and genre is crucial.

– Someone who knows the current book market makes a difference.

– A good editor is un-biased.

Settling for one, two, or three of the above characteristics is a compromise and it’s just not worth it. Your writing is a valuable piece of you. You’ve spent a lot of time on your project and this translates into an investment. Make the final step worthy of what you’ve already put in.

Editors also want to know you. It is important for them to see if the relationship will work as well. They also have an investment in time, and it won’t be taken lightly if they are truly looking after your best interest.

Editors are people we’ve invested time in finding at 10 Day Book Club. We do not hire them although we have become the “go-between” for writers in the past. This has helped to keep the dollars and time for editing relative to what’s appropriate in the field.

Fermenting takes time & your writing is proof. Get drunk, tap publishing. Let us help.

10 Day Book Clubs offer people a chance to tell their story and get feedback. It may be a healing journey or the path to publishing. Join us on Facebook at 10daybookclub and let us know when you’re ready to share.
