Editing explained and why you need it.
One of the biggest apprehensions that many new writers entering into self-publishing have is editing. They have written the story they had in their mind (or heart, whatever the case may be), but what stops them from putting it out their for the world to read is the validation from an editor. They know they have to run it through a professional editor, but they are not sure whom to trust or even how to go about looking for one who would be a right fit for their style of writing.
Inderpreet Uppal has tried to address the very issue through her book, 'Self-editing, Editing and Editors'. A lot of questions that new writers might face have been answered directly or indirectly. Being a published author herself as well as a professional editor, Inderpreet speaks with an authority on the subject that every new writer should/ must pay heed to.
I recommend this book to all those who have finished their manuscripts or are in the process of doing so. Getting a professional editor to go through your manuscript is imperative. How to go about it, how to make sure it's a right fit, how to ensure the safety of your MS, and what to do before handing it to the editor...these and many more such questions will be answered once you read the book.
I give this book a full, five out of five stars.
