Cheering for the rest of you, and I'm still up for story exchanges in the future should anyone need it. Congr...

I know of some editors even though they cost. I could give you E-mail or web pages addresses. But I have need for a beta reader or two. One for a novel just sitting there for a month or two, revised and everything, and one for a novel I will be finishing very shortly, if I can get the very end the ...

How do you guys go about finding a professional editor? I have a novelette I need to revisit, but I'll also have a novel (hopefully) in a couple months. I've used a copy editor I found on Facebook one time, but I think I want a developmental editor. Any resources out there? Recommendations? Thanks f...
