When writing a book, whether you have a publisher or are self-publishing, what is the key to reaching your target audience? More than anything else, it’s about how well written it is. Revision is an essential step.
Most publishers nowadays are under a great deal of economic pressure, and lack the resources for time-consuming revision. They only accept manuscripts that are practically ready for printing. This means that writing must be technically sound but also coherently constructed, engaging and easy to read. Is this the case throughout your manuscript? Even experienced authors sometimes lose sight of how important this is.
Whether self-publishing or not, you will reap rewards from a professional giving you feedback. You book will make a much better impression with your target audience – and a bigger splash in the media!
Feel free to send me an excerpt from your work, along with any questions, and I’ll happily provide some brief feedback over the phone.
