I'm using a professional editor for the first time, and I've noticed something interesting. Rather than editing a single chapter and responding (to determine how I work as an author), he's doing the entire book with absolutely no feedback in terms of what I want from him (I have yet to see it to see whether he's on or off-track).
That makes me wonder, what's everyone's expectations in terms of editing. I've long fed chapters to my editors/proofreaders a chapter-at-a-time. Now I'm thinking it would be better handing them the finished product (after I've already revised the entire book). The downside is that seeing something corrected early allows me (the author) to correct the other errors found in the story.
What's everyone's opinions? Am I off-base here?
