You finally finished the first draft of your book! That’s a serious cause for celebration as far as I’m concerned. It’s unfortunate how many of us have amazing book ideas and don’t actually write it for one reason or another. But you did it! You found an editor that you like and have some level of professional trust in them – I hope. If you’re still looking for a book editor, this post will let you know what questions to ask before hiring one.
So your editor checks out. You send the book to be edited and wait for their feedback. Now what? This is a critical point for any writer that’s passionate about what they’ve written. There’s a lot of room for both you and the editor to drop the ball here. Please don’t let it be you. Here are your do’s and don’ts.
