As a first stage in this guideline, you will need to determine what type of publishers you want to become.

Competent advice for authors who want to make their work public. When your company is established, you are almost prepared to start your career as a professional editor.

Self-editing is a cross-country race, not a quickie. Every stage in the publish, market and expand your audience gives you priceless experiences that you will use throughout your entire professional life. Most self-publishers fear that errors in self-publishing will keep their manuscripts in a crate under the sheets for ever, but fortunately this is far from it!
