During the process of editing a manuscript, which was to be self-published, the author began asking me questions that had little to do with the writing or editing process. One such question was what company should I use to print my book? Another, should I publish a print book or publish an e-book? These questions sparked the realization that as editors we now do more than just doctor the words. Our clients look at us as their advisers. Susan’s class will provide some ideas how to handle the questions, protect our editing time, and offer handouts that you can give to your clients.
As a DIYer, o.k. as a control freak, Susan K. Stewart has self-published both print and e-books. In addition, she has edited magazines and books for more than ten years. During those years, she has seen a change in the editor/writer relationship. As an editor, she has developed material to give to her clients to help them through many of these questions.
