Question For All Self Publishers!

I did have a different post planned for today, but then I started tidying a pile of Writing Magazines. The special self publishing issue caught my eye and I couldn’t help but pause in my tidying for a quick read. 😀

The thing is its left me with a question;

Do you get your self published books professionally edited and proof read?

For a while I’ve been getting a book ready for self publishing, right from the moment I started writing it I knew that I was never going to try the traditional publishing route.

Until of course a friend convinced me to give it a try, so now after writing, polishing and editing until I thought I could edit no more I’ve sent my manuscript out into the world and into the hands of agents and publishers.

I haven’t however given up the thought of self publishing so the big question is, do you get your self published books professionally edited and proof read? Or do you do it yourself?

 

One thought on “Question For All Self Publishers!

  1. I self-published mine myself and it was a long process – but doable. I have found some mistakes I need to correct and when I publish the sequel in a few months I plan to republish ‘Crossing The Line’ with a new book cover and all my mistakes (I hope!)corrected. I’ve learned a lot in the past year and a half so hopefully it will easier the 2nd time around and I won’t make the same mistakes twice.
