Could That Freelance Book Editor Be Scamming You?

I had an $1800 education about freelance editors. She was recommended by Outskirts Press. I complained about the awful job. I was told the problem was mine because new writers tend to be verbose. The manuscript I sent had 72,000 words. The edited version I got back had 72,000 words. I still have the original document as a reminder of how a writer can squander so much money and think the publisher would back him up. Wrong! I wouldn’t use Outskirts Press again to publish a recipe.

Fantastic advice! I’m an editor, and I always offer a sample edit before even discussing payments. The sample works to the benefit of both author and editor. If your styles don’t mesh, the book suffers.
