Product Description

Here's what some satisfied users of the Self-Editing Toolbox say about it:

"I used this when editing my books... Once you know what to look for and how to fix it, these self-editing techniques make your writing tight and powerful." (D.J. Stutley, author of Operation Foxtrot Five and 4 others in the series.)

"The Self-Editing Toolbox really is every writer's essential guide to editing their book to submission standard: easy to follow, yet effective. The colour-coding makes it so easy to sort the rough spots from the prose that glows. I still have some polishing to do but my test readers say they can't wait for more chapters as my characters 'live off the page.' I love they're so hooked by a story that I was struggling to finish and feared I couldn't develop to its full potential. I so nearly gave up on this WIP. With The Self-Editing Toolbox you really have taken the hard graft out of writing." [Viv Adams, Romance Writer]
