A typical book should go through at least three different types of editing, and they should be done by at least three different people:
Mary Jeddore Blakney
EDITOR | AUTHOR
"Mary is able to untangle phrases and sentences that three editors before her could not. She's amazing."
"...I'm not publishing a thing without you proofing it."
Owner, Green Frog Publishing
"I will never publish another book without having Mary Jeddore Blakney go through it. She is easily the most thorough in the business and incredibly easy to work with. On top of that, she is also one of the least expensive."
Author, Council of Peacocks
Beyond the Black Sea
A Fallen Hero Rises
Demons of Dundegore
