Wow! You’ve put hours and hours of your time to say nothing of the amount of blood, sweat, and tears you’ve shed (most likely a ton of the latter) into writing your book and now you’re ready to publish.
Has your ‘pride and joy’ been edited? No?
That’s where I come into the picture. I know you’ve most likely had your English teacher go through your manuscript, plus four of your favorite friends have double checked it for typos, but using Spell Check just doesn’t cut it. (Think of there, their, and they’re and you’ll know where I’m coming from with this comment.)
Too many pesky punctuation problems or homonym horrors may have gone unnoticed in your text, creating an impression that you just didn’t care enough about your work to have it edited. I’m certain that is not the impression you want to make with your story! Editing isn’t just about checking for misspelled words or grammatical gaffs.
It’s taking the time to ensure that your message comes through loud and clear throughout the proper usage of your words. It’s about readability and flow of the story, improving the content (if needed), as well as checking to see if your absolute favorite words aren’t overused to the point of creating boredom for the reader.
Everything you write is an extension of you and the message you want to share with the world. The words you share are a representation of your finest work and thoughts. Before you set them loose, send them to me for editing.
I’ll make them sing and dance… without adding music.
