Today I’m sharing links to others’ blog posts…
“10 Things Your Freelance Editor Might Not Tell You — But Should” by Tanya Egan Gibson
Here’s a brief quote from the near the end of the post:
“The best it can be” does not mean “the best book in the entire universe.” It also doesn’t—and shouldn’t—mean “the vampire-free book the editor wishes it were.” It means making it something you feel truly represents what you wanted to do and say.
If you have (or expect to have in the future) a book (fiction or otherwise) for which you intend to hire an editor, this post is well worth reading.
