An important step to publishing a book is to make sure you have it edited.
Editing a book yourself can actually be difficult, as you are too close to the work and will overlook issues both small and large because your brain will know what you meant and fill in the gaps.
Whether you hire an editor or not, which can be expensive, you want to make sure that your manuscript is in the best shape that you can get it.
In this training, we discuss why you need an editor, the types of editing you can apply to your manuscript, and some of the latest self-editing tools that are available (many of which are taking advantage of the latest advances in artificial intelligence!) to help you get your book into great shape before publishing.
The specific tools we cover are:
- Built-in Grammar Checkers
- Hemingway Editor
- Paper Rater
- Marlowe A.I.
