Did you know there are six steps to producing a book, and THREE of them are editing??? But ask yourself: What do you really know about editing? Do you understand the differences between developmental editing, copyediting, and proofreading? Do you know what order they need to be done in? Do you know how you should prepare your manuscript for editing, or even how to find reliable editors, and how much they will cost?
