Copy versus Content Editing

We have, at last, secured the right copy editor to work with us on our indie publishing venture.  That has taken some doing as we had to find someone who would work with us in a new, somewhat unorthodox way.  It feels like the way we used to work in the indie film business - finding creative ways to get the job done when you couldn't afford to pay up-front for everything at once.  Of course we would have loved to have had input from a content editor too, but when you can't afford  both, at least we have the feedback from our fellow novelists on Authonomy.  
This week I am going over the first half of the book and plan to finish the tweaks to the latter half and hand over the manuscript to the copy editor for the start of April so that we can concentrate on the marketing campaign in time for a summer launch.  Roll on launch day!
