While a good, professional (human) editor is invaluable to your book – the purchase of manuscript editing software can be another prudent investment.
Editing software uses powerful algorithms to compare your content with that of thousands of published authors. It finds where your writing is clunky or awkward and helps you turn your words into dynamic prose that gets readers’ attention.
"Less is more" is a cute phrase for minimalists, but don't limit yourself when it comes to online retail options for worldwide book sales. Successful self-published authors are tapping into larger markets, which include many other retailers beyond Amazon.
Print on demand books for the independent author haven't just leveled the playing field, they've changed the nature of the game. It is now cost-effective to print books as needed, not relying on offset printers to churn out thousands of books to justify the fixed costs.
