If you have worked tirelessly on a manuscript over a long period of time and have finally completed, it’s important to get a second pair of eyes on your work, to provide a little distance, as well as getting an outsiders view on it, you have received good feedback from friends, family, book groups, peer review sites, and so on, who think it is ready to be published.

However, the one difference often highlighted between traditional and self-publishing is editing – that layer of additional work that takes a manuscript from having potential to being great, although it can be easily overlooked, having a good editor can add a lot of value to your book, trimming out all of the unnecessary text.

Some authors work with their own editor; some edit themselves and have the skills to perform both roles of author and editor. Though if you don’t fit into either of these categories, your self-publishing company should be able to offer editing services, with the editing completed by professional, qualified editors.

The difference between editing and proofreading, Editing is more structural, removing structural errors and line-by-line improving the work. New Generation Publishing will be happy to discuss its editing service with you.
