You've written your first book. Now what?

Hire a professional editor? Of course! But when the quotes start coming in, you start to feel overwhelmed, shocked. You know their professional expertise is worth every penny, and you know your book would be better for using them, but what do you do if you can't afford one right away?

Do not give up! Self-editing is okay when you are first getting started!

It can be daunting and scary, but I'll walk you through it. There are a lot of grammar rules and style guides to remember, and some editors spend years of initial and continuing education to learn their craft.

Please note—How to Self-Edit Your Novel is not a replacement for a professional editor. When your first few books are off the ground and your income is consistent, please be sure to find an editor you love working with, who enhances your voice and style. But until then, this book will help you sidestep numerous roadblocks and hurdles in your way to becoming a self-publishing author.
