At 9:42am it happened I finally heard back from my editor. She said that she liked my first draft and that it was much better than the original first chapter.
She also asked if I would be interested in hiring her as my copyeditor, and of course my answer had to be “Yes.” The only thing I’m nervous about is the price; because I’ve never actually reached the point with an editor that you discussed pricing. If there’s any writer’s or perhaps editors out there that could give me an estimation I’d appreciate it.
Right now I’m guesstimating that a professional editor would cost from say somewhere between 8 hundred to well maybe 2 grand. Somebody please tell that I’m way off base with the 2 thousand guesstimation. Please tell it’s not higher, I hope it’s not higher.
If the price range is something I can afford I’ll be so happy and I’ll also be working a lot of hours on this book; which I’m completely stoked about. By the time this book is complete I’d like to think that I’ll be well on my way towards publication. 🙂
