I’ve been writing for a number of years now, but have never published anything anywhere other than my personal blog…I’m currently working on a project I might like to self-publish. As a self-publisher, should I hire an editor to help with my work? Or can I do it on my own with the help of my test-readers? If the answer to hiring an editor is yes, how do I go about finding a good quality one for a price I can afford? At what point should I give them my draft? Is there any other advice you would have for me? I’m new to the ‘polishing and publishing’ world.

Thanks so much!

God Bless,
