Children’s Picture Book Update

Many of you have asked me, “How’s the book progressing?” Hot off the press, the latest updates:

The title is Heaven, Just Believe. The copy editing phase and phase 1 of the conceptual editing is now complete. Today, the manuscript has entered phase 2 (the last phase) of the conceptual editing. I will receive it back May 13th for the final review. Yippee!

You may be asking yourself what’s the difference between copy editing and conceptual editing?

The copy editor reviews the technical issues. The editor is on the hunt for any punctuation, spelling, or grammar errors. 

The conceptual editor’s focus is plot formation, character development, and dialogue. The editor flags any areas of concern but it is the author’s job to do all rewrites.

Everyone I’ve worked with at Tate Publishing has been very helpful and a blessing. Thanks Tate team.

I can tell one trait of a writer must be persistence or perseverance. Patience? No process is immediate but I'm sure the sifting makes it an even better book!
