Things to know about editors

By August 21, 2020 No Comments
  1. Editors want their authors to succeed as writers. Your success is our success!
  2. Let an editor see a sample of your work and he or she will tell you what type of editing service you need.
  3. Editors do not all edit the same way. Editing is an art as well as a skill and we each look at your work a little differently. If you don’t like the way one editor helps you, try another.
  4. Editors understand that the manuscript is YOUR creation. You pay us to help you make it better—not take credit for your ideas.
  5. Your work is automatically copyrighted as you write it. Editors have no rights to your original work.  We would never share your work in any way without your permission.
  6. You can certainly disagree with your editor. We make suggestions.  We do not do your creative work for you.
  7. A good editing job does not mean publication or an A grade on a paper. Good editing allows the reader to more easily understand your ideas or follow your story.  We don’t change the quality of your content.
  8. Time is money. The faster you need it, the more it will cost.  An editor will give you an expected deadline for returning your work.  The price will go up if you need it more quickly.
  9. An editor is not your parent or your best friend. You’re paying us to find mistakes and make suggestions that will improve your work.
  10. Editors are people, too. Most editors are also writers and know how it feels to have an editor critique their work.
