comment Problem with hired freelance editor
Well, the light editing was done on the wrong ms, so at the very least you could send it back for that. If you choose to send it back, point out the typos and ask what's going on. Why did the editor make those changes to make the words the wrong spelling? Is there some American/British/Australian etc. dialect thing going on?

comment Which one is the correct dialogue punctuation format?
@Lara Yes, it's fine. If you want to make it a tag, you'd write it as "I did what I needed to do," he said, lowering his head.

comment Problem with hired freelance editor
Yikes! I'd either resend your correct manuscript and insist the person do it over again for no additional cost, or if the work is that bad, see what your contract says about cancelling.

@NeilFein I absolutely disagree. This is about how to write. There are no details about the plot of the story here.
