No, this isn’t a sale. We covered this topic in a Google Hangout on Air. Believe it or not, there are ways to make sure you get the most out of your editing dollar. If you go back through the archives, you’ll see I’ve talked about this before, but it bears repeating. Of course, you don’t need to read… you can listen instead.
Of course, who am I to judge? If you prefer to pay your editor to check your spelling, remove your overused words, and spend her time on a rough draft, it’s your dime. But you can take this to the bank: your editor will love you forever if you improve your writing skills from one book to the next. I know it means a lot to me.
