Episode 4: Pamela Hilliard Owens and Keith Owens and Guest Dr. Robert McTyre.
Pam and Keith co-founded their 2nd company, Detroit Ink Publishing (add link) in 2012, after working with several writers and authors with the first company, Writing It Right For You. Today’s topic discussed the editing component of preparing a manuscript for publishing, especially the different levels of editing available and the difference between editing and proofreading. Our special guest this week is Dr. Robert McTyre, the “Editing Guru,” and also one of the co-founders of Detroit Ink Publishing. Dr. McTyre, who has been teaching and editing for over 35 years, further explained the editing process, including the neurological elements. Once your manuscript draft is completed, hiring a professional editor is the next step for potential self-published authors.
