Self Publishing Professional Resources

 

Freelance Developmental Editor

A developmental editor provides the same assistance as the editor of a publishing house. Send them drafts and outlines for initial guidance, and they work with you making edits to improve the book. The big difference is that you have the final say in how your book will read. The price of a good developmental editor is paid for in the time you save the extra sales you will make.

You can find a developmental editor at the Literary Marketplace

 

Copy Editor

A copy editor reviews your finished copy, generally improve the writing and catch any mistakes. The best chance of ending up with a solid, relatively error-free text, you'll probably need to bring in an editor with some experience. After reading your own script several times it is all too easy to overlook typos, punctuation, grammatical mistakes and spellcheck does not pick up everything.

Editing Guidelines

Graphics

  • An Illustrator or cartoonist - to provide pictures for the book or for the cover.
