Book Editing: Editing ServicesEnsure Your Book Creates the Impact You're Looking For

Below is a comment about an author's book (who did NOT utilize Writer Services) from an irate book buyer. This comment, sadly, has been posted at the world's largest online book merchant for millions of people to see. It is one example of what can happen if your book is not properly edited and proofread:
author, Xxx. Xxxxx Xxxxxxxx, may have some sound, very
basic advice on her subject, but oh does she need an
editor! Redundancies and serious typos unfortunately
make this short book almost impossible to read.
From the back cover: "Many people dream of starting
a business -- but are hesitant to start a business of
their own because they don't know if they're the right
sort of person to be starting a business or are worried
that they'll start a business and fail." Does anyone
else think the idea is overstated and that the word
"business" is overused?
Here (below) is one true example of what happens to thousands of aspiring authors who do not take the proper channels and get their books professionally polished. This is a posting at one of those "substandard" online venues:
"In hingsight i've learned this book needed MAJOR editing and "filling" before it was sent to publication, however, in my state of eagerness to get it published i sent it as is. Now i am trying to seek the aide of an editor or ghost writer to assist in revising this work for republication."
Editing ServicesMost of us can come up with great ideas and know what we want to say when putting things in writing. But when it comes to getting great concepts and ideas across to the reader, most people fall short of the task. This is where effective editing can really help.
A good editor understands what the writer is attempting to accomplish. A good editor can tell how the writer wants to influence the reader. A good editor can also make certain that these and other vital elements are never overlooked.
The way in which a piece flows and how things are communicated can make the difference between success or failure in achieving the desired results. Whether it is a novel, dissertation, short story, article or proposal, having a good editor to review and critique it is a necessary facet in the evolution of written material if any professionalism is to be attained.
