This sounds interesting. I've been fortunate to have received the attention of a top editor, (through my publisher). It would be the equivalent of breaking the official secrets act to disclose my editor's name(!) I nearly fell off my chair when the names of several best selling authors were casually disclosed to me as authors who use this editor. Having my first MS edited by this amazing person was like a three year creative writing course condensed into one month. What an eye opener! Good luck with your course on self-editing. I'd like to attend, but other commitments make it impossible.
