Video Interview: What exactly does a self-help editor do?
Nancee and I talk about types of editing, nonfiction book publishing, and what a self-help editor does.
A big problem I see with many manuscripts is that the author didn’t start with an organizational plan. The writing may be fine, the concept may be strong, and the content may be excellent, but if the manuscript isn’t organized well, the finished book will be hard for the reader to understand. It is vital that you learn how to organize your nonfiction book.
