Writing a book is an intensely personal kind of project, which makes many writers reluctant to share their manuscripts with friends, beta readers, or book editors — but there’s no reason to be shy. Across the industry, both traditionally published and indie authors typically work with a professional editor, whose experience allows them to see all the merits and flaws of their clients’ manuscripts.
From big-picture concepts like structure and character to more surface-level issues like copy editing grammar or proofreading punctuation, editing is an integral part of the process regardless of whether you’re writing fiction or nonfiction.
