Book Editor Fair Oaks

The process of writing a book is tough, but editing the book you've written is arguably tougher. It's almost impossible to perceive your own mistakes as an author, whether that’s just a handful of typos or plot holes galore in your story. To fix these problems and all others in between, you’ll need a book editor in Fair Oaks!

Book editors can cover everything from the initial deep dive into your work — which should fix the structural, plot, and character issues with your book — to the final proof that ensures your copy is completely typo-free. Of course, you’ll need different editors for different jobs. If you’re not sure what sort of editor you should hire, go with an editorial assessment! An “assessing” editor will look at every part of your manuscript and give you an overview of what needs to be fixed, so you can hire the right slate of editors to do the job. This saves you time, money, and the stress of trying to identify such mistakes yourself — again, editing your own work is simply a hassle that you don’t need.

But not just anyone can perform an editorial assessment, or do a copy edit, or any other type of editing you might require. You’ll want someone with sharp eyes, experience in your genre, and a great communication style! That’s what you’ll find here on Reedsy, where our editors have worked with bestselling authors all around the world. Join today to find precisely the right editor for you.
