You’ve finished your first draft — then what?

You’ve finished your first draft — then what?

I share my work with a writing critique group, but no matter how much I value their input and the help they’ve given me to improve the piece I’ve shared, they don’t see the entire manuscript.

This is when I turn to Elizabeth Lyon’s — Manuscript Makeover that sets out the process under different headings so you don’t have to read the book from start to finish, but go to the sections where you need the most help. For me it was the chapters on characterization.

Additionally, this book includes a section on marketing, so that when you’ve done everything possible to make your work the best you can, the next step is also covered in this helpful and must have novel for any writer.
