The book market is competitive…
Creating a story that resonates with readers and keeps them turning the page is a rewarding journey, but a hastily edited manuscript can undo all your hard work in a heartbeat. There are thousands of books being released to online marketplaces each year, and when it comes to sales, a pro-quality editing job is often what separates the books that take off from the ones that don’t.
Most writers understand and appreciate the importance of editing, but many start the process too late. When you self-edit your draft prior to submission, this allows your editor to focus on core issues—resulting in a quicker, more efficient editing process… and a much better story.
