Review by Deep Downer

Being a published author herself as well as a professional editor, Inderpreet speaks with an authority on the subject that every new writer should/ must pay heed to.
I recommend this book to all those who have finished their manuscripts or are in the process of doing so. Getting a professional editor to go through your manuscript is imperative.


Review by Dee James

Inderpreet, being an editor and an author, has brought out her knowledge and experience of both these roles in this book. She’s (unconsciously) answered all the questions an author might have, putting their apprehensions to ease.
What I liked about the book: succinct, well-structured, informative, and complements the Toolkit series so well! Overall, a must-read (especially) for new authors!

Do I Need an Editor?

I could share scores of sentences; even paragraphs, from so many books that would make you laugh or scoff at the silly mistakes, and then make you cringe at the obvious ones. Surely, you don’t want the same to happen to your book? I am sure you don’t since you are reading this book.

I have worked with a couple of authors (no names or books will be mentioned obviously😉) who came to me with a book that was already published. Call it ignorance or oversight or overconfidence—whatever was the reason for putting out a book without editing—but they learned their lesson from the feedback they got for the book. A bad review is not just something to be upset about; it is a stepping stone to a better book, and better writing next time.

You, dear reader, made a wise choice: you decided to learn and improve your writing. No matter what and why you write, you want your words to be error-free, not verbose or repeated.

Silly mistakes, clichéd or repeated tropes in writing are easy to overlook, especially if the work is your own. Having errors in your work or mistakes that bring down your writing are definitely not the kind of things a good author wants.
