I’m waiting for my favorite beta reader to react to my book. What she says will determine my final actions — do I put the book out this November or do I hold it back to show to a dev editor?
I’m pretty confident about the book not needing a dev editor, because I read through a number of times for flow, for sense, for proofreading.
No, I’m not confident, but I can’t afford a dev editor right now. I’m excited about putting it out. I haven’t had momentum like this in ages. In a perfect world, I’d have a quick and inexpensive dev editor. Maybe if I go through it one more time …
How do people go through all this publishing a book?
