Melody Anne’s Advice For Self-Published Authors: ‘Hire an Editor You Can Trust’

melodyanneSelf-published author Melody Anne is speaking at our upcoming Self-Publishing Intensive, a three-week virtual intensive dedicated to publishing your own book.

During her presentation, Anne will be giving advice on how to market and sell your eBook once it is ready for publication. In preparing for the session, we asked her to share a tip for self-published authors. Here is what she said:

By far, my number one piece of advice for self-published authors is to hire an editor that you can trust, who knows what they are doing, is educated and knows the changing rules out there. Who also knows you and your voice and doesn’t try to change that. I have 2 editors who I absolutely adore, and if either left me now, I would be devastated! That’s how good your editor(s) should be.”
