An author’s words can pull in a reader … or push him or her away. It’s all about the editing that is brought in by another set of eyes.
Three of the huge takeaways from the AuthorU-Your Guide to Book Publishing podcast with Editor Barb Wilson:
- One of the biggest grumbles on Amazon reviews deals with mediocre editing—or lack of any editing.
- Be wary of your own “word blindness” … repeating the same word or phrases ad nauseam in your manuscript is a reader turnoff.
- You should write what you want to write, not what you think will sell. Readers will know you are faking it. Don’t chase fads.
