DATE: November 16, 2019 Florida Chapter, Mystery Writers of America Luncheon Meeting
GUEST SPEAKER: Victoria Landis
PROGRAM: Editing Improves Everything
As the ways of publishing a book have expanded and changed, so have the way editors interact with their authors. Authors (Traditional and Indie) demand flexibility in the degree of editing, as well as the methods employed. Using a checklist for corrections helps polish manuscripts without feeling as though you’re untangling a ball of knots. Victoria Landis began editing other authors after spending ten years in a tough critique group, and writers began to ask if she’d edit their work.
