Professional Editing and Book Doctors
One sign of an agency which might be less than reputable is one that pushes editing by one editing service raising questions of a kickback. To avoid that when I suggest a manuscript needs editing and I am asked for a referral I refer several by sending them to this list. I don't endorse any on the list but if I found out anything negative about one of them would remove them from my listing. This also offers someone the opportunity to do a little comparison shopping. If there is a problem with anyone I list I would appreciate knowing about it.
Candace Adams,EditorMuse http://www.editormuse.com/ EditorMuse is an editing service for authors of literary and commercial fiction and nonfiction. Our mission is to inspire better writing by working closely with the author (and agent) to create a publishable work. Before beginning work, EditorMuse creates an editorial analysis that includes our assessment of what the book is trying to do, where it succeeds, where it falls short, and what should be done to fix it.
