Do you have a book that you’ve been dying to write? After writing and co-authoring 10+ books over my 30 year career, I’m ready to start helping others to write the book they’re passionate about. You can’t just go from idea to a written book and send it off to Amazon. Believe it or not, the difference between the amateur writers and the pros is the writing team behind them.
Your book has a greater chance of becoming known on Amazon by self-publishing. And having friends and family read and edit your work is not enough to gain the attention of an audience. By working with me and my writing team, we offer the following professional essentials that you’ll need to make your book a success.
PROOFREADING is the reading of a final draft, galley proof, or an electronic copy of a publication to detect and correct production errors (typos). It is the last stage before publication.
COPY EDITING involves correcting spelling, punctuation, grammar, terminology, jargon, and semantics. The copy editor ensures the text flows. They assist with a line-by-line edit analysis of the text, and with minimally rewording sections that need help. The copy editor is usually the last editor that an author will work with.
CONTENT EDITING requires that the editor work closely with the author, offering suggestions on subject, format, organization, and general style and readability. In some cases, a consultation begins before the actual writing. The overall content of the writing is evaluated ensuring consistencies in dialogue, character development, trajectory of plotlines, and the tone and flow of the piece. Content editing demands attention beyond the line-by-line edit. Our team will determine if your work needs this extra service. It could make the difference between an amateur story and an epic novel, biography, or memoir.
REWRITING/STRUCTURAL EDITING. Structural editing (sometimes called developmental editing or substantive editing) is complex and time-consuming stage of the editorial process. This intensive step considers what parts need to be omitted, rewritten, re-arranged, or left as is; as well as content editing line-by-line.
MARKETING. With over 724,000 followers on Twitter and thousands of connections on other social sites, Your book will be promoted for one year. You’ll also receive a written foreword by me and you’ll be tagged and @mentioned on your social sites as well.
