Basic Tips for Hiring Your Next Editor. That should have been it's name. It also self-promoted the author's own professional editor (who continually chimes into it so annoyingly in italics randomly a lot.)
So how much is exactly about editing tips? Well, it tells you to send your manuscript to 3-5 friends, have them tell you what's wrong, and then you fix it. Yep. After that, it goes straight into how to find an editor. So, I don't see how anyone can actually say they learned anything from this book about the editing process except how to hire within your budget and what kind of editors there are.
But even some of these reviews make it sound like it's about actually editing, not hiring for editing. Which doesn't make any sense. What book are they reading? Where is this?
Hot tip: See that summary? You might need someone who knows writing jacket copy. They could write a synopsis that actually describes the book. You worked and clearly edited this book (with the editor). Why would you do that and leave your summary looking amateurish and not explaining what the book actually is? It's about hiring editors.
I found this book to be very informative and helpful. The book contained information on the three components of editing, what to charge, and it gave scenarios on questions that an author might want to ask for feedback on his/her book.
There were other pertinent details given in this book, which I also found helpful. I believe that this book will help me to help someone who is looking for assistance with their book.
