About this episode

What kind of editing does your book need? JoEllen takes us through all the different kinds of editing: copy editing, line editing, and content editing. We talk about character and story editing, structural editing, narrative arc, editing tools, common editing problems and misconceptions about what editors do.

Since 1994, FirstEditing has edited more than 200,000 documents for authors worldwide. Some of these authors will self-publish, says Taylor, but we also talk about authors who are preparing manuscripts for agents so they can get a traditional book deal.

FirstEditing is a virtual company with great pricing and their staff and editors live and work around the globe.
