Having trouble finding the right editor for your book or novel?  I have worked with several editors on several projects and I can tell you there are good ones and bad ones, ethical ones and unethical ones.  Unfortunately, there is only one way to be reasonably sure of getting quality output for your manuscript.

Start by perusing these lists of editors.  Look closely at their qualifications, publications they’ve worked on and any testimonials you can find.  Go to each editors website and read it thoroughly.  Ask questions about what kind of work they’ve done in the past and if none are readily available on their website, ask to see some.

To start you off here are 5 good lists of editors, both freelance and non-freelance.  Do your research, be informed and then make a choice based on those conclusions.  The best option is always to take sufficient time in making your decision.

  1. Freelance Proofreaders, Freelance Editors, Proofreaders, Editors – Guru.com.
  2. Canberra Society of Editors
  3. Editorial Freelancers Association
  4. Rants & Ramblings:  On Life as a Literary Agent
  5. Book Editing Associates

Now it’s your turn.  Do you know of a good editor?  Would you like to see him or her spotlighted on this blog?  Feel free to contact me at authormikebailey@gmail.com!  I would love to interview a good editor and get them some exposure here!
