Developmental Editing

A Handbook for Freelancers, Authors, and Publishers

Editing is a tricky business. It requires analytical flair and creative panache, the patience of a saint and the vision of a writer. Transforming a manuscript into a book that edifies, inspires, and sells? That’s the job of the developmental editor, whose desk is the first stop for many manuscripts on the road to bookdom—a route ably mapped out in the pages of Developmental Editing. Author Scott Norton has worked with a diverse range of authors, editors, and publishers, and his handbook provides an approach to developmental editing that is logical, collaborative, humorous, and realistic. He starts with the core tasks of shaping the proposal, finding the hook, and building the narrative or argument, and then turns to the hard work of executing the plan and establishing a style. Developmental Editing includes detailed case studies featuring a variety of nonfiction books—election-year polemic, popular science, memoir, travel guide—and authors ranging from first-timer to veteran, journalist to scholar. Handy sidebars offer advice on how to become a developmental editor, create effective illustration programs, and adapt sophisticated fiction techniques (such as point of view, suspense, plotting, character, and setting) to nonfiction writing. Norton’s book also provides freelance copyeditors with a way to earn higher fees while introducing more creativity into their work lives. It gives acquisitions, marketing, and production staff a vocabulary for diagnosing a manuscript’s flaws and techniques for transforming it into a bestseller. And perhaps most importantly, Developmental Editing equips authors with the concrete tools they need to reach their audiences.

What Editors Do

The Art, Craft, and Business of Book Editing

Author: Peter Ginna

Publisher: University of Chicago Press

ISBN: 022630003X

Category: Reference

Page: 320

Editing is an invisible art where the very best work goes undetected. Editors strive to create books that are enlightening, seamless, and pleasurable to read, all while giving credit to the author. This makes it all the more difficult to truly understand the range of roles they inhabit while shepherding a project from concept to publication. In What Editors Do, Peter Ginna gathers essays from twenty-seven leading figures in book publishing about their work. Representing both large houses and small, and encompassing trade, textbook, academic, and children’s publishing, the contributors make the case for why editing remains a vital function to writers—and readers—everywhere. Ironically for an industry built on words, there has been a scarcity of written guidance on how to actually approach the work of editing. This book will serve as a compendium of professional advice and will be a resource both for those entering the profession (or already in it) and for those outside publishing who seek an understanding of it. It sheds light on how editors acquire books, what constitutes a strong author-editor relationship, and the editor’s vital role at each stage of the publishing process—a role that extends far beyond marking up the author’s text. This collection treats editing as both art and craft, and also as a career. It explores how editors balance passion against the economic realities of publishing. What Editors Do shows why, in the face of a rapidly changing publishing landscape, editors are more important than ever.

World University rankings were announced by Thomas Reuters and The Times. As an Indian, besides being one teaching for nearly five decades, I was eager to know the results of the announcement. I showed enough concern. Where have our good Indian universities/higher educational institutions been placed? I set my eyes on top ranks, and it didn’t give me anything to be proud of. My eyes crossed over more than two hundred and fifty names of universities of the world, including those of some not so “developed countries.” But I came across no name of Indian institutions/universities. This upsets me. What made the Indian educational scenario virtually get eclipsed by the scenarios of the rest of the world? I drew a comparison between the higher education in India with that of many other countries. The World Education scene in general occupied a higher level of degree in research and publication than that of the Indian Education scene. Research flourishes when research is brought to light through publication. I always advocate sound growth in Indian Education. This can be achieved if we improve journal publication. This awareness has resulted in this book. Therefore, Journal Publishing is a Cultural Imperative. This -book is designed to help readers understand what a journal is, the people who are responsible for the creation and production of this journal, how a journal is published, where a journal flourishes, and why it is mandatory in education development. I have taken materials from all over the world and all these sources have been acknowledged in the references, but for them, this book would not have been a reality.

You wrote a book. Very nice. But you didn't write to keep it for you. You should publish it. The problem is that the publishers charge high prices for some authors pockets, and do it objectively, due to the high cost of printing. But you allowed that luxury, and now you have a printed book, with you as the author. You can keep hundreds or thousands of volumes in your personal library and give it as a gift to your friends in special occasions, or try to distribute in various libraries. You managed to distribute it, the book is beautifully placed in shelves. In time, dust is spread on covers. After a while, the book is withdrawn. It remains to use it as decoration at home, or support for various household items. But lucky for you, there is an alternative, cheaper and more effective, in selling your book: e-Books! e-Book and online publishing market has evolved rapidly in recent years, and a lot of companies have entered this market, as publishers, online bookstores, or promoting e-books.
