THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO SELF EDITING: POWER TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR WRITING, WEBSITE, AND BLOG
Meet the author: Roxanne Reid
I have a post-grad degree in English Language & Literature and work as a writer and travel blogger. For the past 20 years I have also been an independent book editor and proofreader, working for international publishers like Penguin Random House and Oxford University Press. I’ve edited fiction and non-fiction, and worked as a manuscript evaluator, compiling reports for publishers on what works or doesn’t. This has given me insight into what makes for good, clean copy. I’ve mentored authors to improve their writing, noting what they struggle with and what common difficulties they face. Now I’ve condensed all this knowledge into a short e-book.
