Do you know what to expect?

When hiring an editor or proofreader?

The prices are all over the map, so to speak, but thanks to Dan Alatorre we now have a good idea what to expect. Dan broke the prices down so even I could understand what to expect. I mean, no one likes to get hit with sticker shock. Finding the right editor or proofreader for the right price is a delicate balancing act for each writer. Even a children’s picture book requires a professional touch.

Read Dan’s blog post and tell me what you think. I really want to know. Although my novel is not ready for prime time yet I hope by years end to be editor shopping myself.

Have you ever hired an editor? How was your experience?

Do the prices jive with Dan’s?

How did you find your editor?

  1. I have come across two editors online that I am focusing my attention on. Both have the whole range of services and seem to be passionate about the work they do. Their rates are reasonable [unlike Person A in Dan’s article]. Still, I have not gone as far as references yet. When I get to that final draft, I will be doing that.
