3. Editing Services

Your manuscript should be professionally edited.

Is this service included in your contract?

If so, how much are you paying for the editing service and what other services are included in the editing fee?

Is the editing fee in line with market value?

My experience is that most editing services that are included with self publishing deals tend to be above market value.

I highly recommend hiring a freelance editor.2

You will have to pay for the editing services out-of-pocket, but hey, you are self publishing.

Everything you need to get your manuscript on the shelf of a big box retailer will require you to pay out-of-pocket to make it big without a traditional publishing deal!
