    David, that really depends on what you mean by "editing." Every word processing program, including the freebies, has the ability to scan for spelling and grammar mistakes, but none of them, including all of them combined, will catch every mistake, and every one of them will identify as mistakes things that are correct.

    A copy editor, the human kind, will out-perform any book editing app or function. They do not work for free, and the ones that offer bargain rates are often utterly unqualified to do the work.

    And of course no program or copy editor takes the place of a developmental editor who notes plot holes, weaknesses in character development, contradictions in fact, aspects deserving better research, areas needing shortening or outright deletion, sections that need far more detail, and all that sort of thing. You do that first, then revise, and then get copy edits.

    A paying publisher provides all levels of editing at no cost to the author. Authors who choose to self-publish can decide not to use an editor, but it's common to see so many mistakes and weaknesses in their work that it's clear they really should have. A book worth writing is worth getting in its best possible shape, if you ask me.
