How to Find the Right Editor for Your Book

Part of the Getting Your Book Published For Dummies Cheat Sheet

One of the most important tasks in getting your book published is to find an editor who's going to get behind your book and help it — and you — make your way in the publishing world. To find an editor who's a good fit, try these tips:

  • Read acknowledgment pages of books similar to yours — authors often acknowledge their editor's contribution

  • Scour press coverage of books you admire for the editor's name

  • Go to writers' conferences and/or conventions and network

  • Call the company that published a book similar to yours and ask who the editor is
