Over the next 6 months, I’m going to walk through the process of editing a book—start to finish. I’m in early edits on Visions (Cainsville 2) and I’ll be using it as my example. When I teach writing, I’m often asked what exactly happens during edits—both the process and, more specifically, “what kinds of things do publishers want changed?” This post will give me something I can refer students to for a much more answer than they ever actually wanted :)
I’ll be adding to this post as I go. Note that this will be what I consider “spoiler-free” for both Omens & Visions, but I will be referring to characters and very broad-strokes plot points from both.
