So You Wanna Marry an Editor Huh?


Ok perhaps marriage is extreme simile but make no mistake, you will be emotionally linked to your editor for the duration of this process. Keep in mind, altering your manuscript beyond rectifying spelling and grammar mistakes is just the basics of editing.

An editorial manager can distinguish irregularities with regards to your mentality as a storyteller and the way that you hand-off the data. These are varieties that you may not see however will affect the reader’s insight. By depending on the proofreader's criticism, you can distinguish and sharpen your voice.

This likewise gives your crowd or potential fans a positive initial feeling!


11. YOUR WORK IS SAFE

When working with an expert manager, you can have confidence that your work is protected. They won't impart your protected innovation to other people. They additionally won't take your thoughts to make their own work. (By the way this is very rare. It is almost impossible to give your book away to a publisher. I can assure you no one wants to steal your book)
