EDITING SERVICES

While L. Cooper Press does not provide editing in its publishing package, I can personally recommend excellent editors. I've been in the business over twenty years - as an editor and author - and even though I am an editor, I always hire one to go over my manuscript before I allow anyone else to see it: agent or publisher. And it doesn't matter if it's a novel, a newspaper article, or a stand-alone short story, or a short story for an anthology. Once your words have been published, they're in the world for anyone to see. 


Readers notice mistakes and awkward sentences you may have overlooked. So make sure you're proud of your work. After all that's your signature. Your baby. Make sure the diaper is clean.

 


A few years ago, I was the victim of a scam editor, one who proclaimed he edited for a best-selling horror novelist. I hired him, paid the exorbitant fee, and was surprised he didn't allow communication during the process. When he returned my 'edited' manuscript to me, I was  extremely disappointed. Shocked even. He did very little work in return for the high fee. Even though I protested, he ignored me. 

The editors listed below are all hard-working and honest. And I've personally used them all, so I know they're good. And they allow communication during the process, will answer questions, and explain what and how they're editing.

So check them out, send an email directly to them for your questions, and choose the editor who you feel is the best match for you. 

Good luck in your writing, and may your book be the next best-seller!
