Editing is integral to the writing process, but its role is often misunderstood. What if editing could make writing less stressful and more enjoyable? What if it could help you write sharper, more compelling prose?

The Editor’s Eye shows you how editing can transform your book from good to great. In this no-nonsense guide, book coach and editor Stacy Ennis takes you through the ins and outs of the bewildering book-editing process, giving you the tools to write the best book possible. Understanding how writing and editing complement each other, you’ll become more confident as a writer, finish your book faster, and move toward the ultimate goal: publication.

Published and would-be authors will discover how to:

• Master the basics: Understand the four core editing stages and when they should take place.
• Write with an editor’s eye: Streamline your writing with self-editing techniques.
• Hire and work with editors: Learn where to look, what you can expect to pay, and how to collaborate.
• Revise painlessly: Implement editor and reader feedback with ease.
• Learn from the pros: Get advice from 20 publishing experts, fiction and nonfiction authors, and editors.
• Get free resources: Download a style guide, editing checklist, and more.
