Edit, Edit, Edit and Edit Some More…Aargh!


Okay I understand the importance of editing. Every writer gets it. None of us can write a book first draft to the book shelf, right? Okay maybe some of you can. What bothers me is my first editor, credentialy accomplished, edited my first book for a whopping fee. Then a reviewer made some comments on the editing so I freaked and paid another enormous fee to another well accomplished editor. Now through a series of circumstances, another editor is working on it. Yes for an enormous fee. I now think that every set of new eyeballs will have a different opinion and style on editing. When do I put a stop to the prying eyeballs and accept that the work is great?
