Training #470 – Book Editing for Authors

You have spent days, weeks, months, (even years!) writing your manuscript.

The last thing you want to do now is spend more time editing it, but some level of editing is needed for every book.

In this training, we'll give you the ins and outs of editing, including what you should do yourself, and what you should leave to the professionals.

Some of the topics covered today include:

  • Does my book need editing?
  • Choosing editors
  • Types of editing
  • How to self-edit (step-by-step)
  • Working with feedback from 3rd party editors
  • Outlining non-fiction
  • Underwriting, overwriting, and finding themes
