Good editing can make indie books indistinguishable from traditionally published books. But as indies, you don't have a publishing house to help manage the process. The editing ball is in your court!

Tabitha Lord has worked successfully with several free-lance editors in the course of her career. She'll share her experience navigating the multilayered, sometimes intense editorial process. She'll help you examine the different types of editing, determine what your manuscript needs, learn how to find, vet, and work collegially with a freelance editor, understand how to deal with critical feedback, and create a strategy for making developmental edits.

Once you've gone through a thorough editorial process, you'll be able to stand behind your work and confidently publish your book.
