5.0 out of 5 stars How to make your manuscript publishing-perfect, 17 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Self-Editing for Fiction Writers, Second Edition: How to Edit Yourself Into Print (Paperback)
Before reading this book I thought I knew it all. I thought I knew how to make my manuscript irresistible to publishers. I thought I knew how to edit my own books.

I'm a published author, but I know that I still have a lot to learn. On every page of this well-written informative book, I learned something new. I learned it from someone who knows exactly how to convey to aspiring writers what they need to do to polish their manuscripts in order to make sure they have a firm skeleton on which to build their story. And so that their characters have qualities readers care about. And above all, so that the prose sparkles from beginning to end.

I can wholeheartedly recommend this book to every beginning writer, and also to established writers. It's sometimes reassuring to know you're on the right track, but it's also good to find out something new that you hadn't thought of before. Something that could make your book unputdownable.
