Getting a good edit is important. Do it yourself or hire someone, it doesn’t matter. But be careful of random editors soliciting on the web.
I just read an advertisement from a, so called, editing company that bordered on unbelievable. I hope writers are not this gullible. The article explained why a cheap edit was a bad edit, and writers should hire this company to get a good and correct edit. The problem? In one paragraph their math said editing eight pages at two dollars per page netted ten dollars.
8 X 2=10, new math I guess. They also used the word here for hear and rambled so bad that their entire argument for hiring them seemed laughable.
My take, edit. But do it yourself, research and find a good professional editor, or with good luck, get a book contract and let them edit.
**NOTE – If you find errors in my stuff, the above is an unedited post, but then again I do not claim to be an editor.
But then again, if you want to send money my way, oh never mind.
