When Should I Hire an Editor?

Right now.

For once, I am not joking.

But what if you are only halfway done? Or you haven’t even started yet?

Still book an editor right now.

Why?

1. You will get your book done.

I would never have gotten my last book done if I didn’t hire an editor. There is nothing like a deadline to get you moving faster than Marvel fans to the latest Avengers film on opening day.

2. Editors book out in advance.

Editors are generally booked out several months in advance. If you want your book to be done by a certain time, you want to get on their calendars as far in advance as possible. It is always a bummer to have to tell potential clients that they have to choose between working with us or sticking with their deadlines because we are booked out. Save yourself some heartache and book an editor ASAP.

3. It gives you something to look forward to.

Anne Shirley (from Anne of Green Gables) was all about the joy of anticipation. If you have booked an editor in advance, you have something to look forward to: feedback on your book. If you hire us, you also can look forward to fun pop culture references and lots of GIFs. It is like literary Christmas (or whatever holiday you choose to celebrate)!

We still have two spots left for editing this summer. If you want your book edited during these balmy months, connect with us now!
