I recently completed self-published my first book: Tiki Essentials
, a reference guide for Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware
. This is the first book I've ever published, and the first time I worked one-on-one with an editor. And I have to say that the experience was great. Not only did he find (and correct) tons of errors through copy-editing, but he also provided valuable comments and insights in overall layout, organization, and structure.
As I look back on the process, I have to wonder if working with an editor made me become a lazier writer?
Or have I become a better writer, now that I can draw from my editor's talent?
Are you a writer who has worked with an editor? What do you think?
I'll have more details about my publication process in a later post…
