If you hire one of these editors you will need to pay them directly. We are only referring you to them. We do not hire them for you.
We do not earn any referral fees or anything whatsoever for referring you to these editors/book doctors.
WARNING: There is no licensing agency for editors and there are many online now who are NOT professional editors. We receive complaints almost daily from authors who hired an editor they found online, and then found even more errors in their “edited” book. (This even happens with editors who work for some POD publishers!) References can be easily
manufactured so you should only hire an editor who’s done a good job for an author or publisher you know.
NOTE: Many POD publishers now claim ownership of edited manuscripts (what they call the production files) even though authors paid THEM to edit their books. We call this a “forced marriage” because it makes it almost impossible for an author to move to another publisher
someday, even if they are unhappy with their current publisher. We strongly recommend NOT paying a publisher to edit your manuscript. Freelance editors don’t try to claim ownership of an author’s files.
