Book Development and Style
Refine your writing style and avoid common writing mistakes to produce a professional-level manuscript
As an author, you are expected to present publishers with a polished, professional-level manuscript every time. Your manuscript has to not only fulfil industry-standard technical criteria – such as word count and formatting – but also demonstrate originality and express your unique voice and style as a writer.
This means ensuring your book manuscript is free from grammatical errors, plot holes, character inconsistencies and detail omissions. It means avoiding predictability from beginning to end and making every word count. It means using cliches, slang and other literary devices effectively, not excessively, to establish your personal style.
In publishing, this process is called book development. It’s complex, it’s challenging, and it’s just as important as writing the draft manuscript. But in this book development and editing package, we’ll guide you through every step.
If you want to understand the common writing mistakes to avoid and learn how successful authors develop their books with style and originality, this package is for you.
How to plan a Book from Idea to Outline
It’s designed to empower you with the knowledge and skills you need to develop and edit your manuscript into an original unforgettable book.
It focuses on common writing mistakes to avoid and a range of editing techniques and style guidelines that help authors maximise the impact of their story.
