Session Sponsor: Purple Ninja Editorial
Hiring an editor can be intimidating. You’ve spent hours, days, weeks, maybe even years pouring your heart and soul into your manuscript, and the thought of handing your baby over to someone you may have never met is understandably a bit nerve-racking. Take heart! An editor’s job is to help you make your book the best it can be, not to rip it to shreds.
