The Guardian had an interesting article today about self-publishing:
One of the BTL commentators made this point:
'To me, the biggest gap in self-publishing is the editing. This isn't just proofreading - a good editor will work with the author to shape the manuscript into something of high value. There are loads of experienced freelance book editors, so I would encourage authors to invest a bit of money into editing, to make sure their book is as good as it can be before it is released.'
I totally agree. If you want to get your self-published book up to the stringent standards of conventional publishing houses, contact www.root-and-branch-editing.com: Nick Hodgson is a highly experienced and creative book editor and proofreader.
