Hire the best book editors in France



Once you’ve self-edited your first draft to the best of your abilities, it’s time to enlist the help of a professional book editor. An editorial assessment can be a great first step if you aren’t feeling certain about what your book needs, as it will give you a bird’s eye view of your manuscript’s strengths and weaknesses. If you’re ready to go into the nitty-gritty and zero in on every single chapter, covering big picture elements like structure, character development, and themes, you’ll be looking at a developmental edit. Otherwise, for manuscripts that have already been edited thoroughly, a copy edit or proofread can give you a more assured push to the finish line.


If you’re ready to hire a book editor in France or beyond, Reedsy’s marketplace is a great place to start. Our professional editors are hand-picked and constitute the top 3% of talent in the publishing industry, meaning that every single one of them has met our criteria of having worked in big 5 publishers, successful traditional presses, or with bestselling authors. Once you sign up to our marketplace, you’ll be able to browse their profiles, explore their portfolios, and see who they’ve worked with in the past.



For the best collaboration, look for editors in France (or further afield!) who have extensive experience in your book’s genre — they’ll be the most authoritative experts you can consult. Sign up to Reedsy today and meet your future partner in all things editing.
