Fall Roundup: Our Best Blog Posts about Editing
Aug 26, 2016
Here in Vancouver, Canada, the skies are blue and the sun is shining, but a chill has crept into the air. Fall is coming. For us September is a time of change and new beginnings.
Many of our clients see it that way too. They’re using these last couple of weeks of summer to complete their manuscripts and prepare them for delivery into professional hands. In most cases, the next step will be to have their work professionally edited.
In anticipation of that stage, we’re giving you a round-up of our favourite Page Two blog posts about editing:
- Who else is confused about what editors do: an explanation of the various stages of editing, from substantive to indexing.
- How to hire a skilled editor, and what you’ll pay: one of our all-time most-read blog posts.
- Three things to expect from your substantive editor: what qualities to look for when hiring a substantive editor.
- How to self-edit like an editor: useful if your next step is a round of revisions.
The editorial process is critical to publishing a great book, so we wish you luck with this stage! Let us know if you need help.
