Unless you’re a unicorn writer, you’re going to need to edit your book (a lot) before it’s ready for readers. That often means slogging through the depths of the internet to find an editor who seems like sort of, close to, maybe someone you might trust with your manuscript. And as you’re doing this brutal guesswork, you’re wishing you could just edit the thing yourself.

you can.

Seeing a work in progress with the keen eyes of an editor is a learnable skill. We’ve trained more than 50 book coaches to see the issues in a manuscript – from the big-picture sweep of it, all the way to the nitpicky tweaks – and to instantly know how to fix them. Being able to see your own manuscript in this way is what you can learn in our Book Coach Training and Certification program. Even if you’re not interested in working with other writers, this information can revolutionize your own writing process.
