Product description

In The Business of Editing, Richard H. Adin, An American Editor, discusses the roles, tools, processes, profits, career, and future of freelance editing--460 pages of solid thinking and useful advice for anyone who makes a living working with words. "This collection of essays is a must-read for any editorial freelancers who own their own business. Covering both theory and practice, Adin's no-nonsense approach to the business of editing will appeal to new starters and seasoned pros alike. Highly recommended." --Louise Harnby, proofreader "I rely on the American Editor to help train my mind to view editing as a business as well as an art and craft. I entered the field with zero business acumen and have learned enough from this resource to not only ensure my survival as a freelancer, but also to do very well if I apply and incorporate more of the practices and tools so generously shared and meticulously explained." --Carolyn Haley, DocuMania "Should you be contemplating starting as an editor, or even if you have been one for quite some time, this highly readable book will certainly offer you ideas, information, and techniques that will make your work so much more pleasant and effective. An absolutely essential book to read and learn from." --Tony Cole, owner, eBookAnoid (www.ebookanoid.com)
