Has anyone here ever used a paid editing service? I have, and I found the experience so useful I wrote this: Happier Than A Nerd In A Library Full Of Star Wars Toys – A Review Of Scribendi Editing Service. I’m bringing it up again today because I’ve just received an email from one of the editing companies I looked into, saying they’re having a sale, and I thought it might be a good opportunity for anyone considering getting a professional edit.
From February 15th to 19th, the folks at First Editing are giving a 20% discount when you use the coupon code PRESIDENT while placing an order. I haven’t used this company before (I was intimidated by the hot office ladies) but I remember them offering a free sample edit first, so now might be a great chance to try them out and if you like what you get, you’ll still have a few days to snag a bargain.
So check out my Scribendi Editing Service review to see how it works and what I learnt for getting the best out of a service like this, and if you take up First Editing’s offer, I’d love to hear how it goes. Or if you’d rather go it alone, I’ve had a lot of great feedback from my editing checklist series and there are more to come, so hopefully that’s useful for you, too.
