This How-to for Authors section features all the advice you need to edit and proof your book well. First, self-edit your book by transferring your file to your Kindle or other ebook reader with text-to-speech function, and play while you read. This will help catch the errors that the eye scans over.
Here's a couple of reading recommendations:
- Nonfiction writers: Read On Writing Well: The Classic Guide to Writing Non-Fiction by William Zinsser
- Fiction writers: Read Self Editing for Fiction Writers by Renni Brown and Steve King.
