How do I know I have a good editor?
A good editor is well organized and will give you an estimated turnaround time for editing your manuscript, keeping close to the date they give you. Another sign of a good editor is that they are honest- they won’t say nice things just to keep you happy. A good editor will read your manuscript thoroughly before making changes. They will let you know what changes they’ve made to help you improve your own writing. While editing, they will respect the author’s voice. A good editor will also take your comments and suggestions seriously.
