I believe every self published writer needs to have their project looked over by an editor. WHY SHOULD I? In my opinion it would help improve the reputation of Indie writers. Editor’s will go over your story checking for grammar mistakes and suggest ways to improve the overall storyline. They give you tips and tricks to help your story flow correctly. Most of the bad reputation comes from writers putting out crap. Their book is filled with grammar mistakes (mine was full of them so don’t hate) and the flow of the story is choppy. People are scared to buy an unknown because of the big load of crap that’s out there. If everyone that self publishes would have their books checked over by a professional it would break down some of the hype that Indie is garbage. It doesn’t mean you will have a great book, but it can move you toward a better book.
