Having survived the revision process with multiple books and publishers, Mary will give some down-home tips on when enough is enough and how to get to that point with your sanity intact.
She’ll address nuts and bolts of the revision process, as well as an insider’s peek behind the curtain of Big 5 publishing. *Cue music, “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.”Editorial tips and shortcuts, examples of first round edits, line edits, and copy edits will be revealed with great fanfare… or not. But, Mary will bring them just the same.This will be a casual session with lots of opportunity for members to share their own tricks.
