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.

Learn the tricks and tools to producing a more polished draft with the Beyond Ten Days self-editing master class.

Turn your diamond in the rough into a polished manuscript today.

Woman taking notes
  • Infodumps 
    They're the quickest way to put your reader to sleep. But have no fear—I'm going to tell you how to avoid this pitfall.

  • Dialogue mechanics
    What's one thing they don't teach you about in English classes (but it's one of the most important things in writing)? How to format and punctuate dialogue. But I've got you covered.

  • Show vs. tell in dialogue
    But how do you make your dialogue sing? Just writing it correctly isn't enough. You need it to pull your reader in.
     
  • Carrying show vs. tell forward to your narrative
    Are you a little confused when people start talking about showing and not telling? Let's take this from concept to practice.

  • Deepening your point of view and strengthening your protagonist's voice
    Point of view is a critical aspect of storytelling. It's what pulls your readers in.

  • Overwriting and how to avoid it
    Wait, what? Overwriting? Yes, sometimes too much is just too much. 

  • Saying it once—trust your reader!
    Learn this key concept and strengthen your storytelling immediately.

  • Tense issues
    Tenses are the devil, but you know what? They're totally manageable, and I'll show you how.

  • The dreaded play-by-play
    You don't ever want your story to read like a to-do list. Let me show you how to avoid that.

  • Making your life easier by using styles in Word
    Learning styles in Word will save you hours on every book you write. That is no exaggeration and you won't regret learning this key skill.

  • All about networking
    Why this is one of the most important aspects of your career and how to do it.

  • A detailed discussion of further resources
    Separate the wheat from the chafe and get the resources that are helpful, not just a waste of money.
