An editing quote can sometimes be a shock, but a high editing cost just means that there’s a lot of work that needs to be done on your book. The cost of the edit might make you wince, but what’s the cost of not doing it?
Is that story you’ve slaved over worth taking the next step? It’s a question I’ve asked myself with every one of my books, and three times, I decided the story wasn’t worth continuing with. Those unedited and unpublished books still remain in the archive folder on my computer, there to languish forever. Sometimes you just have to walk away.
Other times, you need to take the plunge and put your money into your dream to make it a reality. And a full edit will not just make it a real book, it will make it a REALly good book!
So how do you decide which category your book falls into? The one you should walk away from or the one you should invest in? That’s what I look at in this video.
