Book editors for hire in Cambridge

If you have a first draft of a story on your hands, you’re due for some congratulations! You’ve just passed the biggest hurdle, but it’s not time to pop open the champagne yet. As you already know, the writing and publishing process is a long, dark, and punishing tunnel. But that’s why book editors exist, so that they can give you the light right beside you as you make your way through it.

Every story will benefit from a thorough edit before it’s put on the shelves. More specifically, there are three kinds of professional book editors — developmental editors, copy editors, and proofreaders. What type you need depends on what stage your book is at. If your story is a first draft that you suspect might be structurally unsound, then you need to find a developmental editor who can fix all of the “big picture” snarls in your manuscript. However, if you’re more concerned about the more granular problems in your manuscript — such as story inconsistencies, sentence structure, and grammatical errors — then you’ll want to turn to a copy editor. And if you’d like a last insurance check to catch any remaining mistakes and typos, then you’re probably in need of a proofreader.

If that sounds like a lot of information to absorb, don’t worry! On Reedsy, you can browse through the profiles of thousands of the best book editors for hire in Cambridge and around the world. We only accept the top 3% of publishing professionals, ensuring that the talent on our marketplace are the cream of the crop in the industry.
