In my first post about completing the first draft of a novel, I promised to give you an update on what happens next. I keep my promises:
Late last night I sat with the family as they watched The Walking Dead. I don’t watch. I hate Zombies. I love Vampires, but that’s a different post.
Hoping to distract myself from the gnashing sound of zombie teeth on flesh, I checked my email via my phone and there it was – the professional editor’s assessment of my first novel!
I gave the email a once-over and was encouraged enough to open the attachment. The editor sent a five-page breakdown of what worked for her and what didn’t.
Stay tuned for a synopsis of the editor’s opinion and recommendations along with my next steps.
I will include:
- Different types of editing available
- What an assessment covers
- Why I selected an assessment
- How to choose your own editor
- Results – worth the money or not
- What’s next?
