Gary Bonn asked Jay Cole:

Thank you for liking my notes on editorial input. I have worked as an editor for professionals and indies alike. Both need lots of help (as do I when actually writing). Can you guide to the notes any indies you suspect would benefit from the advice? I have seen so many disasters - including single mums pinning everything on an unreadable book. Thanks!

Jay Cole

Be glad to help.

I think writers are susceptible to tunnel vision, too. Editing often becomes a judgement call between what you want to believe is great and what's actually good writing. Getting objective advice is sometimes the only cure.
