When Writers Should Consider Consulting a Professional Book Editor - video

Many new writers believe that self-editing or having a friend review their manuscript is enough to get it ready for submission to agents and publishers. While some writers get lucky with this approach and are able to land a publishing contract, most writers need to consult a professional book editor first, as author and editor Elaine Ash explains. If you've submitted your manuscript to agents or publishers and have received rejections or non-responses, you should consider hiring an editor to take another look. A professional editor will do an assessment and help you determine what's holding your story back from getting attention. More importantly, a good editor will tell you what's working with your story. Most writers, Ash says, have a great story, but things get lost in the execution. Consulting an editor will greatly increase your chances of producing the best possible manuscript.
