How to Find the Right Editor for Your Book

There are tons of editors on the market, but you don’t have to look too far with our team of trusted editors right here at BookBaby.

Custom book printing

So, your book is written. You’re just about ready to publish, but you’ve got one final, big step–editing. And now the question is: how do you find the right editor?

Right now, the market is flooded with freelance editors and book editing companies. Just do a simple Google search of “book editing services” and you’ll find tons of options. And within those options, you’ll find even more choices: services like copyediting, line editing, proofreading, query letter editing services, and oh the list goes on.

So, again: how do you find the right editor?

Experience is key

You probably felt a huge wave of relief once you wrote the last few words in your book. However, writing is just part of the journey. You want to be sure that when your book is on bookstore shelves and in the hands of your readers, it’s been thoroughly edited and at its absolute best–which is why finding the right editor is crucial.

Your editor should have experience in your genre, as well as experience in the editing game itself. And while you could spend hours scouring the Internet for this unicorn editor to whom you’re ready to hand over your work, why not let us do the searching for you?

BookBaby has a team of editors from around the world who have worked with best-selling authors in every genre: memoir, sci-fi, fantasy, self-help, business, cookbooks, you name it! These pros are skilled and swift—you’ll have your edited manuscript back in just 6-10 business days so you can get your book out into the world.

BookBaby editors vs. freelancers

When it comes to editing your book, there are hundreds–dare we say, thousands–of freelancers out there who would do a great job. However, many of these freelancers market through sites like Upwork and Fiverr. The problem with this is that these sites don’t exactly monitor the work these folks are producing. So, you might be taking a gamble on the quality and efficiency of your edited work.

BookBaby, on the other hand, works with an exclusive network of trusted editors from around the world. These premier editors have worked with authors in every genre, so you can be sure that your work is being reviewed with the right lens.

BookBaby editors vs. editing companies

Here’s the thing with editing companies: most times, they charge for a full “editing package” that gets it ready for publishing. The problem with this is, you might not need some of the services for which you’re being charged.

BookBaby lets you choose the editing services that your book needs. Select from copyediting, line editing, or proofreading services, and you’ll stay in control of what goes on with your book, at a price point that works for you.
