Having recently worked with Helen Hardt at Musa Publishing for the upcoming release of The Crosstown Kid, I thought I’d share some impressions for writers who might not have worked with a professional editor yet.
I don’t know about you, but I was a little nervous prior to the process. I had nightmare visions of my work being gutted, torn to shreds, clawing its way along with its legs hacked off, a dead, flat, hollow shell with only the barest resemblance to the version that flowed out of my head. Something I would despise and never want to look at again.
Turns out, this was a pretty dumb vision.
