    should come from the publishing house that buys the manuscript and says "We're gonna make your a star!"

    That said, it should go to said publishing house in the very best condition possible, which means at least one very critical reading from eyes other than his, possibly two.

    And if real editors on this thread have offered help, talk to them. Also check out Write On! on Thursday nights -- Sensible Shoes and others have good info on the biz.

    It's OK to pay for editorial assistance, good even for people like me who've been freelancers, just be careful not to get sucked into one of those pay-to-play schemes.
