I’ve been looking for an editor to take on Bridgebuilders, so this article caught my interest. I’ve just hired someone – still in the contract stage – and I’m happy to say I think she meets the criteria Mr. Rinzler sets out here.
I found my editor through the Editorial Freelancers Association. I was glad to find this organization, not least for the chance to peruse the résumés of several prospective editors. This is hypercritical for the independent author, as we can so easily hire second-rate editors, or worse, be the target of scammers posing as editors.
