SPA Girls Podcast – EP60 – Interview With An Editor

towelThis week we talk to Olivia Ventura from Hot Tree Edits about being a full time editor. She was a fantastic person to interview, and gave great advice on how to work with editors and how to find someone who will do the kind of edit you want for your book. She talks about the most common grammar mistakes that authors make, how to do edits on your own in preparation for sending your manuscript to an editor, and some best practice ideas for making sure your book is as tight as you can make it.

It’s a fascinating must-listen episode, that you’ll love!

  2. Rather fun, especially since I’m currently reading “The Po78&nero#s21i;s Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York” and just finished a section on cyanide and am in to the second section on arsenic
