Finding an ideal editor is an author’s dream but agreeing on a fee may seem like a nightmare. Authors often wonder how editors come about a charge or a fee and, without the right information, they may feel somehow short changed. At accepting a manuscript for editorial, the editor considers several factors which helps them come to an editorial fee. Editorial fees are not reached about from a vacuum and they are a once-off payment despite the number of copies the author will print and they should be accounted for when pricing your book.
After enduring a long, grueling, bumpy writing experience, you probably find yourself confused and stressed about how to find the perfect Editor for your work. It surely takes serious determination, patience and hard work to finish a book. It’s a heroic process and well done for doing it. Great job soldier!
Like promised, I’m back again to discuss the different stages of editing. I didn’t get any comments on my previous post most probably because people have been busy and also because of the lockdown. It’s a difficult period and it’s important to try as much as we can to stay safe and positive. Hope is all we need at the moment. I also hope that reading this blog also helps to get our minds off things a little.
