After being in the freelance writing and editing business for several years, there are so many things that I have learned in terms of establishing professionalism among clients and the experts. For today’s post, I wanted to focus on helping amateur writers and authors understand the importance of timing when it comes to hiring an editor or any expert for that matter. Before I get into the suggestions, let me highlight why this topic is important to discuss.
Often times, new writers are so anxious to get the entire book publishing going. They make hasty decisions when it comes to certain matters without really considering that book publishing is as much of a professional business as anything else. Establishing yourself as a professional author, whether as a traditional or self-publishing author, is so vital to your book business/career. And as a new writer, it’s important to establish positive, professional relationships so that you and your product can be taken seriously.
Being professional is not something that should only be relegated to the traditional work force, but it should also be a part of your own brand. And if you as the writer have not considered the fact that you are establishing a brand, then you are not as ready to be taken as seriously as you may think. Building your brand, your business, and your products are essential factors that must be founded at the beginning stages; and these factors will come into play as you look to establish positive, professional relationships with experts.
As an example for this blog, I will focus on your need to connect with an editor for your book, mostly because this will be one of the most important relationships to your writing career. For this reason, I want to present some suggestions on why it is important to contact an editor at just the right time. In addition, I want to give some pointers on how to begin the phase of establishing that positive working relationship the first time around.
And as always, let’s grow together!
