Your story is complete and you have solicited valuable feedback from your peers on your strengths and weaknesses. Now it is time to hire an editor to critique your plot and story elements and flush out any spelling or grammatical errors that may hinder the flow of your story. When looking for a qualified editor, please use wisdom and common sense. Double check their website, references, credentials, past work experience, social media presence, etc. Ask tons of questions regarding their availability, expertise and pricing. Feel free to explain to them your concerns and expectations. If they are genuine and professional, they will work with you.
