Copy that?

Saturday, 29 July 2017

The copy edit is the part of book production process when your manuscript is turned over to a specialist who goes through it with a fine toothed spelling and grammar comb. They also look at word use and repetition, check facts i.e. "are you implying this was a Jon Bon Jovi solo album?

Hello! If you've seen your email, you'll know that I have delivered the 'final' edited manuscript to Unbound.

This being publishing, the 'final' manuscript is not in fact final. What happens next is the book goes to see the copy editor, who does a line edit (a very close edit that looks at spelling, grammar, word repetition, consistency of style, that sort of thing).

That's not to say it…

Hi team,

Since my book funded I've had a fair few of you asking, another whisky, really? And, what's happening with your book? Sober so far today, I thought I'd elaborate some on the process. 

You'd be forgiven for thinking that after a 9 day funding storm I finally got some sleep, but this is not the case. See, Unbound, underneath all the shiny tech and cool crowdfunding stuff, is much…
