If you are not collaborating consciously, you may want to listen to Doreen Pendgracs. She is a professional writer, editor and proofreader.
Doreen recommends that you at least hire a professional proofreader to ensure your book is the best it can be. She is the Wizard of Words and author of a most helpful book on the subject of volunteering on boards, Before You Say Yes…
Editors and proofreaders are your collaborators, too.
They want your text to meet with success with every reader and they work with you to get the job done. How does it get any better than that?
