Write a book: After the first draft, what happens?
A lot of new authors are puzzled about what happens after you have got the first design out of your mind and onto the page. It is also only the first stage to your book. This is my trial, and I think it's important whether you write literature or non-fiction.
I' m writing down new sequences that need to be written, consistency concerns, character and more. I' m noting down new sequences or sections that need to be written, consistency concerns, character bugs and much more. This first run usually lasts at least one weekend and is the most extensive processing. If I am convinced that my self-editing is the best I can do, I will submit the script to my editors.

When this is your first book or book in a serial, it may be worthwhile to get a structured revision (sometimes also referred to as a history editor for literature or an editing review). It' less expensive than editing a complete line by line and will help you see if you need to make some important changes or restructurings.
It is usually presented as a sectional account of the different parts of the book, e.g. questions with fictional authors, and questions of the order of chapters or process in the case of non-fiction. This was my first novel, I had a textural adaptation for Stone of Fire (previously released as Pentecost). Since the other ARKANE-roman works have a similar formulation, I have not received any changes to the structure of the other work.
However I got one for the second book in my mystery story, Delirium, when I got to a point when I had dropped the story. I really didn't know what was not right about the book, only that something was not right. She gave me a structured editing and she found the difficult sequences.
And I could go back and end the book. If you get a back-editing structure, there are usually many overhauls to do, possibly even a full overhaul. You may find it difficult to go over the review, so I would suggest you put it aside for a few extra nights while you try to think about it in a non-emotional way!
It is yours, so you can choose whether or not to make the changes, but keep in mind you paid the expert editors to make your final products better. When you choose to follow the counsel, go back to the script and make the changes. These are the classical "red ink" edits where an editors goes through your script line by line and highlights problems in orthography, grammar, wording and any other commentary on the book as it passes through.
Please note that this is not a textual editing and you will be charged by the words or per 1000 words. So, this is the costly editing and you should make sure the book is well connected before you do this. Writers have written terrible tales that have already contributed to more than 120,000 line editing of more than 120,000 novel words, just to make a later decision that they should have edited the book in half and should have been waiting until they did so.
You' ve got to get the book's texture right before you're obsessed about small particulars like wording or grammatical editions. For the first tweak of a real line, it will be painful. However, keep in mind that your book will be strengthened by the processing, and the readers will thank you for it. So the more attention you pay to your book before it's published, the better it will be when it's actually out there.

That can be a great deal of detail work if it is your first book, but it gets better with every book if you are learning from these changes. Nowadays after more than 20 volumes, my line processing is quite tidy, because I have learnt from every processing experiment, so I don't make the same errors again.
Be sure you don't just agree to all changes in the selected script, otherwise you won't be learning! It' important to keep in mind that you don't have to modify what the editors suggest, and sometimes they will be false, e.g. about placenames or culture-specific things you know more about.
Normally I make 90% of the changes suggested by my line editors. BetAssemblers are a trustworthy group of individuals who rate your book from a reader's view. Thou shouldst give them the book only if thyself is satisfied, for otherwise it is irreverent of their age.
In the ideal case you also want them to write a Review when the book is released, so the nearer it is to the final book, the better. For example, I let an Hindi readership go through Destroyer of Worlds to look for problems with my depiction of India, and I had a volcanologist Risen Gods examine for the vulcanic szenes.
In nonfiction, I use betatowners to make sure I've dealt with all the necessary subjects in the book, as well as any problems with slang or overcomplication. There are definitely some guys who really enjoy the kind of writing I do, because they will see problems within the limits of what is anticipated, and then some guys who consider other things.
While some writers use priceless betas instead of professionally written content, I think that the skills of an author are very different from the enjoyable reader experiences. Your line edit fixes have necessarily shown more problems, albeit smaller ones. As a rule, correction is an inexpensive way of checking typing errors, grammatical and verbal problems.
All we have to do is do our best and then let the book out into the wide open! A book's completion is over. You can do this if you want to rework the whole book later, if you are a better author. What is the processing time?
What does it take to edit professionally? Regarding cash, I would budge between $500 - $3000, according to what skill you are looking for and how long your book is. However, the unhappy reality is that working on your first novel is probably much more costly than working for seasoned authors because you have so much more to get to do.
Consider it an initial purchase in your writing and it will become simpler (and cheaper) with the more textbooks you do. In all these different phases, I believe that proofreading is important, because it is our duty to ensure that our accounts are as good as possible. Our aim is to be proud of the final work.
