Which Type of Editor do You Need?

Episode #018

Guest Speaker ~ Deborah Kevin 

“The role of a gifted developmental editor is to see what’s not being said between the lines. They help identify and pull all that yumminess forward and actually give you something that you say, “I wrote that.” That is the feeling you want to have when you work with an editor.” 
– Debby Kevin

Writers share their story to vocalize their internal voice. And, it is the role of an editor to guide the writer and showcase their excellence. Deborah Kevin, founder of Highlander Press, joined me in the Pen to Paper Press Podcast studio for a two part educational conversation that is certain to entertain. In part one, we discuss the various types of editors. Debby shares her pearls of wisdom to clarify the role of an editor and the vital services they provide. And, which type of editor you should run far, far away from. Next week you’ll listen to part two (episode #019). Debby and I talk about the types of publishing companies and a few of the things writers can expect to do once their book have been published to keep the momentum of sales flowing. Pour yourself an adult beverage and enjoy our creative imaginations. This educational conversation is centered on editing your works of art the best way we know how – imperfectly human.
