    These look excellent, but unfortunately they are agent blogs, and this list is for editor blogs. I would encourage you to submit them to the other list.

    Sorry I am a little confused... Why is our blog classed as 'promotional'? We are editors providing tips for writers? Are not all blogs essentially promotional? Surely a post asking for copy editors must class us as an editor blog :-)

    The difference is that as far as I'm aware, the other blogs all belong to people who work as editors at publishing houses, and not to people who offer editorial services in exchange for a fee. Linking to your website in this context could be seen as touting for business, and as such is not allowed here at AW.

    Lou Anders
    The Buried Editor
    Buried Editor's last post was Nov 2012
    • Children's books
    • Editorial ass last blog post was August 2011
    • Doesn't appear to be an editor and non-fiction topics only -- query help
    • Couldn't find editing here. More of an agent's site where she comments on queries.
    Redlines and Deadlines (Mackenzie Walton, Mary Altman, Meghan Miller, Nick Conrad, Raelene Gorlinsky, Briana St. James, Donna Hoard and Helen Woodall)

    "Preditors and Editors" is also worth a look as they list many editing services and comment on them: http://pred-ed.com/peesla.htm

    I'm quite fond of this post, thanks for setting it up.

    I think to have a list like this is a great idea, but are we just looking for blogs run by editors or is it to find quality editors? I looked at Evil Editor for example, then clicked over to her site Hannah Rogers Literary Agency. It says it's new. I clicked on their books. Just by the covers I wouldn't bother.

    It's been a while since Sloane was here but I just had a look at that blog and it's full of errors. Gah.

    Editors don't always control the covers their authors' books are given. And I think the Hannah Rogers agency is a satire. Not sure, do check, etc.

    Definitely a satire site. From the Submissions page:

    Send only your first sentence. After I read your sentence, I might write back saying "Send me the rest of your novel!" So make it a good sentence. If your first sentence isn't good, send a better sentence. If none of your sentences is good, send a sentence from someone else's book.

    I guess the books must be too then, right? Honestly, with so much crap out there today and instant I'll-just-slap-up-a-website-and-be-an-agent! or publisher it's hard to tell. I didn't bother to read the submission page.

    Tell us more about yourself, BHEditing. Where have you worked? Who was your mentor? What training have you had as an editor, what books have you worked on, what's your favourite style guide?
