Ep 53: Between the Lines: Navigating Book Editing
In this episode of the Write the Damn Book Already podcast, we simplify the sometimes complicated landscape of book editing, clarifying the various editing stages.
From developmental editing that shapes the overarching structure to line editing that refines prose to copyediting that makes sure grammar and syntax are correct, you'll discover the important roles each phase plays in refining a manuscript's clarity and impact.
You'll also hear my tips for creating an effective editor-author partnership (not to mention how and where to find a great editor to begin with!).
