Is it possible to edit my own textbook without the help of the editorial staff?
There are 4 variants of this. Acquisition processing - here the editors decide which scripts can be profi ably polish, publish and sell with the means and contact the publisher has in the branch and in the press, then negotiate the sales and accompany the script and the writer through the publication as well.
Editorial work - where the editors read the script from the point of view and with the sensitivity of the targeted readership (which should be a tightly focused group if you want the script to be successful) and find out how it can be re-structured to enhance (practically or emotionally) the value these users expect from the text.
Edit lines - where the editors find unpleasant phrases or clauses and suggest ways to correct them. Copyiting - where the editors find mistakes in orthography, use, and language and can also perform easy fact checks. Under no circumstances will a qualified journalist alter the author's vote. However, I have seen that a good journalist can make the distinction between a 15,000 copy sold and a 1,500,000 copy sold.
Once all the edits, and the writer writes to take full benefit of the edit, then the work, of course, will go to a text creator and layouter. A proof-reader then checks the definitive design of the script against the printed page, using either the printer's page proof or the computer generated document that the press uses to produce the work.
It is almost unknown that an editor can do the other kinds of work. This leads to..... let's say'uncomfortable' words even with excellent orthography? But if not, you can simply say something completely different than what you mean.... all without a word erroneous.
These are the most sneaky mistakes you can find, and even good writers can miss them. However, with Kindle Direct Publishing, you can immediately upgrade and fix these problems and distribute these upgrades to your subscribers. However, my first two books were not edited, and the second (and my first great success) was, in my view, unsuitable for eating when I myself released it.
History is more than just orthography and philology. My advice: If you want to release without an editorial tool, then do it anyway. However, be willing to make your earnings (provided you reach a certain degree of success) as quickly as possible to make a decent editorial effort and, once you have sufficient revenue to meet them, to make the editorial effort part of your default publishing process.
When you get your first copy of hardcopy from astzon or even your first electronic copy..... you will find enough typing mistakes and other mistakes that are or should be embarrassing for you. I' ve found small bugs in the 4th or 5th edition of big publishing houses. Someone will tell you why they can't release your textbook and you can study from it.
When you are good enough to do something for sale, you should not have to buy a publishing house for your conceited. Look at that billions of textbooks are publicized yearly. most are self-published or from vainty press and will not do well. The first thing if you are going to make a query about typing and the declaration that you want to do it all by yourself and that you are really good at orthography and then make some serious mistakes, don't really make your case.
When I ask such kind of thing, I seldom say that I am grammatically or spelled because we all make errors. However, to reply to your query, you can even post without outside help from writers, but I would suggest against it, and this is from someone who has written a textbook, or was part of a typing crew without an Editor.
When you are involved in the process of composing the work, why not try to look at it differently? It' not only about orthography and philology, but also about things you can't see because you get too near the music. You may be asked a question about consistency or why you keep certain parts of your textbook if the textbook could be better without it.
It' not just about the orthography. If you are looking to buy your first purchase for any prize you select, simply keep in mind you are receding the purchase back in pressure to whatever site it hosts to include the stress and shipment outlay. They also want to make sure that the work is not too costly, that nobody wants to buy it, or too inexpensive, that folks are inclined to undervalue it.
In addition, you really have to pay attention to the format of the text. You' ll need to choose the volume of the whole volume, whether it should be hardcover or hardback, the typeface, the size, the width of the channel, the front and back, and the graphic items throughout the work. This applies only to the print one.
More than 2 million publications on Amazon alone make the publishing sector an exceptionally attractive place for new writers. To have a real opportunity for succeeding, your textbook needs to be well composed, editorial, positioned, created, disseminated and monetized. Before they are released, even professionals and bestselling writers have their works thoroughly processed by others.
As you are very well acquainted with your own work, the trouble with it is that you often overlook mistakes. Even as a novelist, it is very important to hear your writings in order to do well. You' re publishing. Yes, you can completely self-publish, and easy on Amazon etc..
However, it is a good idea to have the script checked by someone beforehand - however good we are in terms of orthography and grade, it is astonishing how many typing mistakes we do not see in our own work. Unprejudiced people are good at detecting mistakes, so ask a buddy what he can see.
