The Different Types of Editors and Their Roles - video

What type of editor do you really need for your book? It depends, says Jenna Free, editor and writer for Girl Friday Productions. Some authors work with a collaborator from the beginning, to define the structure, outline and monitor execution. This relationship is very involved. Free believes every author needs a developmental editor, to review a final manuscript and asses character believability, plot pacing continuity and overall storytelling. A copy editor, too, invaluable for punctuation and style guidance. Both developmental (or line) and copy editing expertise lends credibility and creates a polished book.
