Reading and Reacting to Some Real World Editing Comments
Show Notes

I want to tell you that I am super happy with the way the edits to my book "The App" are coming along. My editor has really taken me to task and made me work out the kinks in the system. 

So today, I'm sharing with you some of the comments she has sent to me and exactly how I handled them. I'm also going to share with you an instance where I did not take her advice, although I did absolutely understand and value it.

I have a fairly stringent self-editing process I utilize to ensure that what I am sending an editor is not crazy and too disjointed. I do this because I really don't want to send her udder nonsense. And yet, there are tons of things she can find wrong with it and plenty of things she can help me focus on as I go through the process.

I did, by the way, get permission from her to share this with you. My editor for The App is a wonderful lady called Katherine McIntyre. And those of you have been with me for a while will remember that she is also the author of the Take to the Skies series I love so much. Although I am not a huge steampunk guy, I loved those books.

Maybe if I do this right, we can convince her to come on the show?
