Editing a book can be tough, especially if you’ve never done it before. It’s a dull but critical process, and having the right advice helps you pace your work, preventing it from being rushed and error-prone or dragging on too long. Looking at your own work objectively is quite a challenge and an extra pair of experienced eyes helps avoid rookie mistakes that let your book down.

Note: There’s no premium coaching with editing but I can refer you to editors who will edit your book for you. If you’d like my feedback on how well you’re editing with the checklist, please book a one-hour call and we can review a chapter together.

Important note

My business book editing packages are designed for those who thrive on structure and are excited about creating a robust, well-edited book from the outset. If you prefer to rush the editing and risk mistakes creeping in later, or wash your hands of it entirely and ask your nephew or neighbour to ‘check your spelling’, this editing process will not be the best fit for you. If you’ve been following all the checklists to this point, your book should be in pretty good shape already. If you’ve been working on your book with no guidance and you’ve never published on before, allow extra time to get your editing chops up to scratch.
