Your draft is done! Great!
Here's the next step.

Every good author needs a good editor. Running your manuscript through another brain will improve it dramatically, as well as catching any errors you might have made. It's an important part of the process; even Hemingway and Heinlein had good editors.

The brain for rent at Rent-an-Editor has been a professional editor since 1980, written nine books that were published by companies like McGraw-Hill, edited a magazine, written countless articles and columns, and pioneered some of the longest-running Forums on CompuServe. Lately I have developed a new career narrating audiobooks, with 21 titles available. I love indie publishing, and I want to help writers make their books as good as they can possibly be.

If you become my client, you will be happy with my work, or you will get your money back.
