I am a first time writer and have written an adventure/drama story that has taken about 8 years to write. It was a dream I shared with a teacher of mine that encouraged me to write a book fore he passed away in 2012. My book is about 116 pages, single spaced on 8x10 format. It has been suggested that I have my book done in paper back form in a 5x7 format.
I have reached out to a couple of people that recommended that I self-publish instead of trying to find a publishing house. They say that it's extremely difficult to find someone that would take a chance on a first time unknown author. Additionally one of my contacts say she would assist we with compiling my manual script, formatting it along with the outside front and back covers for a price, however, she is not an editor and recommended I contact a free lance editor she gave me information about of which I've reach out a few times and have not received more that one response. Here are a few questions that I asked this editor:
1. How do we get started?
2. Is there an agreement we need to sign off on?
3. What does the package consist of?
4. What editing options do I have and what are the payments?
5. How do we establish time-lines?
6. What happens once your editing is complete?
Well that's about all I can share with you at the moment. As a first time writer I'm not sure what to expect by price-wise or support. I hope that someone can point me in the right direction and assist me with completing this life-long dream. I'm hoping to turn this into a possible series of books.
