Publisher's Summary

Do you feel overwhelmed trying to revise your novel?
Faced with a hot mess of rough draft, maybe you feel confused, unsure of what to fix - or rather, what to fix first!
Editing fiction takes a slightly different mindset than writing the first rough pass of a novel. There are a lot of moving parts in a work of fiction. The trick is to not try and tackle everything at once.
Rock Your Revisions: A Simple System for Revising Your Novel will show you a clear, easy-to-follow process for editing a novel. It will help you:

Test for story structure on a macro level, providing detailed checklists for character and plot arcs
Test for story structure at the scene level, making sure each serves a purpose in the novel (and hopefully more than one!)
Gain insight on the mechanics of the novel - checking POV choice, dialogue, exposition vs. detail (showing versus telling), and more, with a systematic scene-by-scene approach
This audiobook goes straight to the point, putting theory in plain language, finishing each section with exercises designed to help you see how to not only edit a novel, but improve your audience's enjoyment of your book.

Immensely helpful

I have recently finished my first novel and I have been procrastinating on starting editing.

This short book has been incredibly helpful. Cathy takes you step-by-step through her editing process with examples and tips on writing in the process.

I'm excited about using her method to tackle 90k words of editing!
