Who do you use for Editing?

This post was last modified: 15 Oct 2013 02:16 PM by M.Ali.
Reason I ask is because I intend to use an editor for my upcoming story. I already have someone formatting it so that's one thing checked off of the list. 

Can anyone recommend an editor that they've used or are using?

My editor is Clare Danek @ http://www.textsmith.co.uk.

Reasonable prices and a professional service.

I use Olivia Wood from www.textmender.com. She's a member of KUF, very professional, well-priced and really cares about getting the best from her clients.

I've used Harry De Wulf at www.densewords.com before and would recommend him, especially for advice on storyline structure and grammar.

It's what it costs to have it done by people who make a living from it. If you divide by, say, three, the day rate looks quite reasonable.
