The World of Publishing


I have to disagree with you when you said –  “Because the editor is eliminated in the world of self publishing”. Editors were, are, and will never be eliminated in book publishing. Editing self-published books is one of the important things that an author considers before launching their creations. Almost all of the self-published authors I know have spent a great time in sending their books to their editors to make sure that it is error-free.

publishing     The world of writing and publication is changing.

I never imagined a day would come when the traditional way of publishing would be different and digital technology would dominate the book industry. But I’m living in those days and having to come to terms with the new way that publishing is traveling.

No editing to poor editing will send readers away from any book. I just hope that all self-published books should pass through editing to make sure that the quality be maintained.
