Why You Need a Copy Editor - video

You may think that you don't need an editor because the publisher will take care of it. But that's a big mistake. Even if you're just submitting to a publisher or agent, you're still competing against thousands of other books. Having a polished, well-edited book can be the difference between getting a book deal or not. Author and manuscript editor C.S. Lakin explains why you need an editor for your book. It's especially important for self-published authors since their work is going straight to the readers.

Wait until you have a critique edit done before copy editing, which fixes grammatical errors.
