Publisher's Summary

Why do so many people talk about writing a book but never get the job done? Why do so many start books they never finish? And why is the final product often so much less than what editors and agents want? Because writing is a process, and no steps can be omitted without impacting the quality of the work. As best-selling author William Bernhardt explains, editing begins before you start writing and doesn't end until the book is in print (if then). This book guides writers through that process, explaining what's worth doing and when to do it. With his usual straightforward, demystified approach, Bernhardt explains how to produce a book of exceptional quality.

Good information with a misleading title

Good, helpful information.


The title implies the book will be about editing an existing manuscript. However, rather than Excellent Editing: The Writing Process, a better title would have been The Writing Process: Prewriting, Outlining, Drafting, and Editing.

I'm in the third draft of my novel, and I imagine most people reading this book pick it up because they, too, have a manuscript to edit. But at that point, this book tells you, "Here are the things you should have done from the beginning." Not especially helpful for your current manuscript--but it's at least a helpful guideline for when you start on your next one.
