Self-Editing is a guide for authors editing their own manuscripts for submission to agents and publishers. Some authors seeking traditional publication don't need expensive professional editing, they need to be able to clean up their own manuscripts enough to be read by the agent or publisher, and not end up in a fancy, New York trashcan.
Full of tricks of the trade and step-by-step instructions, Self-Editing includes the most common errors and a detailed grammatical guide with examples.
