A Tip on Revisions

I do a lot of revisions with my authors. Not necessarily a lot with every author, but before sending out a proposal or submission of any kind I want to make sure it’s the strongest it can be and that will often mean revisions.

A quick tip to any author doing revisions. Keep track changes on. This is especially helpful in remembering what I wanted the author to do, but if we’re getting to the end and doing more line editing than revisions it can make my response time faster. Sometimes, if we’ve gone a couple of rounds, I don’t need to read the entire book again, but can skim for just those pieces that need to be strengthened.
In my mind it isn’t until we submit that we need to turn those off.
