I finally finished the last chapter of Demon Possession. *Sigh of relief* Now I have the daunting task of editing. I’ve been researching the process of self-publishing and came across a very helpful book by Zoe Winters called Smart Self-Publishing: Becoming an Indie Author.
Zoe pretty much gives an inside look and the publishing do’s and don’ts. One thing she suggested is, duh, edit your book. You’d be surprised how many people believe they don’t need an editor. Seriously, when you’re writing professionally, how could you not?
Another useful suggestion was to use a program called Editor by Serenity Software, which I downloaded, and it is fabulous! Zoe warns that it is not to be used as a replacement for an actual editor, but it will help you to see where the problems are in your writing. Using it, I’ve caught so many small issues that an editor shouldn’t have to bother with.
