Quote for the Week

“Writing is easy.  All you have to do is cross out the wrong words.”
–Mark Twain

The importance of editing cannot be overstated. Once you have written your draft, you will want to check it for errors and then have a copy editor review the entire manuscript. You also will want to hire a proofreader to check for formatting and other design errors after the book has been prepared to go to print or formatted for e-book.

Even then, most authors find one or more mistakes once the book has been published, but that is usually much better than before the proof reading.
