I want to thank everyone who replied to my email. Your answers have given me a lot of things to think about. I feel hiring a freelance editor will not only improve my manuscript and will enable me to learn more about the writing process.

Thanks again,

Chuck

but writers don't come out of the shell, ready to do all of those things. Learning from the example of others can help.

Not that I'm condoning the use of an editor, but I know of at least four authors that hired editors for their first novel. They both landed agents and the novels sold. I wish I could say who, but I don't know if it's public knowledge.

I don't have anything against using an editor, but as many have said, you have to be very careful who you hire. You also have to be ready to shell out a decent amount of money. As Maia will tell you, you get what you pay for and there are no guarantees.

One thing that should be mentioned here is that there are different types of editors. Developmental editors I think would be the most expenses as they are tearing apart the novel as compared to an editor that is nothing more than a proof reader.

The biggest thing I would be concerned about if I were to hire an editor is communication. As Maia points out she mentors and is an editor so there's a lot of communication. If I'm shelling out a lot of money, that person better be able to communicate and be available for follow up questions.
