You've poured an incredible amount of time, thought, and talent into writing your book, and it's finished at last.
You want to get it published—that's a given! And it can be easier than ever today, thanks to options ranging from traditional publishers to hybrid and "indie," or independent, self-publishing systems.
But before taking the first step toward any of those, you need a professionally edited manuscript. If you're hoping for a contract, that's what publishers and agents expect to see.
And it's especially critical if you intend to upload your words to an online retail site that will take whatever you send in, add a cover, and turn it into a book. Many writers are embarrassed by mistakes that no one ever caught until after the pages were printed.
Experienced authors know the value of working with a good editor who can help them see ways to enhance their books and achieve the quality they want to attain. Why not give yourself that same benefit?
