I know the subject of book editing has been discussed a lot on this forum and it seems everyone agrees that you have to edit your own book rather than pay and editor to do it. I regard myself as being very creative and I have written a book on a very complex subject. English is my second language and I struggle with grammar. I sent a couple of pages to an online editing service called firstediting.com. They did a free review and it came back looking like a bloodbath. I love being creative. I love reading. I even like the writing part as a creative tool but the grammar … oh, the grammar … I would rather leave that to someone who knows what they are doing. So, does anyone know if firstediting.com is any good (They want to charge me around $800 for a 300 page book). I want to self publish through Lulu as I know a lot about online marketing. They also offer an editing service but it is a lot more expensive. Does anyone know how they compare to other editing services? Or would you still say I should edit it myself?
