    Question Anyone ever try two freelance (developmental) editors?

    So, I've been trying to decide on a plan to edit my novel that I want to self-publish. I've decided to skip betas (maybe) and have two professional freelance editors instead. My mom has a couple of friends who are editors so that's a discount cost-wise (I've never met them so it's not like having a friend edit) and I was thinking about hiring another who only specializes in YA. That way I would have two professional opinions coming in at the same time.

    I think it would be helpful. Of course, if anyone's actually tried it I would love to know how it went.

    P.S. I haven't decided on anything yet, but this seems to be the course I keep coming back to.
