I am wondering if paying someone to edit my book, is a good idea, or bad. The negative side to this would be that if it was picked up for publishing, they would probably request a re-write, which would mean I paid for an edit, and therefore wasted money. On the flip side, having it done might prove to be a good thing, and maybe a learning experience. Finding out what punctuation or grammatical errors I'm making, and learning from it. Any thoughts?
