As an aspiring author I've read so many books on writing and editing that I didn't expect many revelations here. However, I am now well and truly a RedPen convert and was so impressed with this book I've signed up to the author's mailing list and the useful stuff just keeps on coming!

The system is so sensible and useful that I wanted to get stuck in to all my working drafts immediately (and I never feel that way about editing). I think it's because this book trains your brain as well as your pen, explaining how to move from the author to the editor mindset and then walking you through what to do when you get there.

It's the gift that keeps on giving. There are straightforward explanations of knotty grammar concepts and tips for using technology short cuts to speed up your editing. Beyond my fiction writing I had so many a-ha moments that I can apply to my writing in general, at work etc. that it makes this book incredibly good value for money. As I said in the title above, a masterclass.

As a first time author, this is one book that every serious writer should invest in. Having gone through the editing process myself, I struggled with that process not knowing exactly what I should be looking out for since I was never 'trained' in that aspect. I must say her book is no fluff! If you want clear, concise help in polishing your draft before letting the world see the daylights of your work, please do yourself a favour and use the very practical and useful advice shared in her book. Her well written book took away all the fog I once had about editing and it's quite a life saver for me!

This is a fabulous book about editing, and how to do it! Anne leads us through her step by step plan and makes the whole process look and feel easy. If you're someone who struggles to edit your own work, this book is for you.

The reader is guided through a series of editing techniques done in a set order. Only when each is complete can you move onto the next one. Yes, you have to be disciplined, but once you involve yourself in the RedPen way of doing things, everything becomes much easier, and the task of editing, is not so overwhelming.

Being a first time author and not knowing where to begin with regards to editing I have found this book to be an absolute life saver! Editing always seemed like an impossible task, but with Anne's easy to follow ten steps, I cannot WAIT to get started! Anne delivers the book in an encouraging, positive fashion that actively believes you can successfully and easily self edit your own book, I wish I had found it sooner!!

Possibly the best and simplest book on how to edit your own novels I have read. There are many editing books out there which go through a whole list of steps on how to edit and I have read some of them but I have always had the impression they were written by people who had never edited a book in their lives. This book is short, simple and has clear action steps that look straightforward to follow and sound as though they are written by someone who knows what they are talking about. I recommend this book as a good guide to editing your own work and I will be using it when my next novel is ready.

If you want to make your writing better but don't know where to start, then it's worth reading this book. It's set out clearly in a way that the reader can follow and progress through at their own speed, then later dip into as needed.

I would say that if you already have a general editing process set-up then you may find useful elements within the book to add to your system.

It's biggest plus point is the clarity, especially for less experienced writers.

I bought this ebook to see if there was another way I could self-edit both my books and short stories. Reading this, I found that the ways Anne has described is v similar to the way I self-edit already but with highlighters. Good to know that I am on the right track when I do my own editing. Great book for new authors starting out and want to know how to edit their works themselves.
