I am working on a book series project right now and I thought it would be a good idea to have my books outsourced because there are a lot of components to the project I am working on and that was just one of the things that was decided to outsource.  I knew that I would need to work on the book once it was received back but boy, was I wrong this time.  I won’t say where I got the work done but I learned a lesson to say the least from this experience.

I got the articles of the book back and they were horribly written.  The english was bad, there were misspelled words, sentences didn’t make sense, and thoughts were all over the place. It was clearly done by someone whose first language was not English.  This was very upsetting because I was on a deadline.

I could have saved myself a whole lot of time just by testing the waters first before I gave the writer the entire job.  I had no other choice but to write the ebook myself because I lacked the time to scout out another writer in a short period of time that I had.

Lesson learned the hard way.  The only thing that saved me was that I was very interested in the topic that I wrote my book about – otherwise I would have been in really deep trouble.
