What Kind Of Editor Do You Need?

There are two major kinds of editing that your manuscript will need to go through before it is published.

What kind of editor do you need?  Content versus grammar?

Let’s look at the difference between the two

A content editor makes sure your book makes sense, logically tracks, stays on topic and isn’t bloated.
When all of that is done, your copy editor comes in and makes the grammatical changes. They make sure your parentheses
and commas are in the right place, that you use the correct form of “there, their or they’re,” and generally nitpick every single punctuation mark.
So, What kind of editor do you need to have a professional book at the end of your endeavors? You need to have both kinds of editors to read through your work and get published!
