I have recently completed my first fiction novel. I have looked at the entries in your blog under editing, and the second posting talks about the how and why of editing, but not the where. Would you mind sending me a link or two of where I might find a good (free or paid) LDS editor? I would like to get the manuscript in a nice, clean state before submitting it to LDS publishers. I had thought of just finding an editor of any kind, but I would prefer somebody who understands LDS doctrine pretty well because of the content of the book.
I am really happy to see that you recognize the need for an editor. All authors should have their mss edited by someone with experience before they submit.
Free editing can often be found through writers groups. Sometimes you can trade editing with another member of the group who has some professional experience.
While I know of several excellent LDS editors who do freelance work, I do not feel comfortable recommending any in this type of forum. However, I’m happy to let them recommend themselves. If any readers offer freelance editing services, please post contact information or links to your blogs or websites in the comments section.
