Ep10: How to Self-Edit Your Book


How to Self-Edit Your Books

Do you know what makes a great book? Some of you may think that it comes from a big marketing campaign. However, before you get to the point of developing your marketing campaign, you need to have a high quality book that is well written.

 

Listen to this episode:

Editing your book is one of those unsexy elements of book writing that a lot of entrepreneurs tend to skip because they think it’s too hard. As a developmental editor, I have to tell you that I have declined working with some writers simply because they refused to go through the self-editing process. What they wanted was someone to clean up their stream of consciousness writing — which becomes more like ghostwriting than editing.

I also know that a lot of you may not know HOW to self-edit your books. A lot of English instructors have done a fine job of scaring people into believing they are not writers, so they pull themselves out of the process rather than stay engaged. So I’m going to give you the highlights of my own 4-step process in self-editing so that you can write a book that is in the best possible shape for your readers.

The 4-step self-editing process is not difficult, however  I wanted to give you some written guidelines that may make working through the steps a bit easier. Click below to download your free Self-Editing Checklist for Entrepreneurs.
