Ep 30: Professional Editing, and Is My Book Garbage? (with Heather Moore)

Rob is once again absent, but we don’t care because we have Heather Moore: writer, editor, businesswoman. Heather owns Precision Editing Group, and she joins us to answer the question: when should you use a professional editing service? We talk about what types of edits are important and how to identify if you need one.

Then we answer the question posed in the comments last week: when you’re rejected, how can you tell if your book needs more revisions/edits/abandonment, or if you should keep moving forward? In other words, is your book a good book with bad luck, or is it a crummy book that deserved rejection? So, there’s a can of worms.

And then we play Storymatic, and we not only tell the story but we also cast the book trailer.

    obviously like your web-site however you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts.
    Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very bothersome to tell the reality on the other hand I’ll definitely come back again.
