How I Edit My Books
It is important to always edit your books. Even after you publish them, there is always room for improvement. The most basic edits you can give to your book are a grammar and a spellcheck.
Never attempt to publish anything without doing this bare minimum of work. It is important to read the book out loud. Sometimes your eyes and your mind play tricks on you.
You can read the same sentence over and over, and not notice the problem. Reading it out loud, helps you notice problems. As a rule of thumb, I am always trying to trim the fat. My books are always losing pages on a regular basis.
It is rare for me to make the books bloated. Even when I add details, it is mainly to clarify certain points that I think the reader didn’t understand. Don’t forget kiddies, always edit your books. This is Teresita Blanco, the author of the Lovers Pentacle. Bye, bye and God bless.
