Writing Books/Editing


Hi Rhonda,

I have a completed manuscript that I would like to get published into a novel. Can you recommend a good editing service to help me with the grammar and sentence structure of my manuscript?


CONGRATULATIONS on completing your manuscript!!!

Most editors I know work independently or with large publishing houses.  I encourage you to do a search on the Internet for an editor.  You can also search directories like Literary Market Place, Writer's Market, Editor and Publisher and Writers and Editors.  I think all of these resources are on the Internet (some have print directories as well).

All the best!  

Again - CONGRATULATIONS on finishing your manuscript!!!
