How does one get money to edit a book when they are temporarily short on funds.

Book is already published but needs some professional editing. It's a good book but some folks rather not deal with it until professionally edited----what do you think?

  • It's already published? ANY company willing to republish will DO their own editing no matter WHO edited it in the first place!

  • At the very least they'd give you an option to either do it yourself at cost, or they would allow you to choose to let them keep more of the profits by in effect 'paying them' per word to let them professionally do it.

    How does one get the money is how anyone gets it. Save. Publish your needs in a straightforward fashion like you've done here.

    Post at Network till you find an investor. Preferably one who's read the book & loved it.
