When it comes to books, an editor is seen as a gatekeeper between the author and the audience. An editor has to take a dual sided point of view in order to keep both parties happy. Authors know their stories inside and out, and have had a strong personal relationship with their manuscript for months or sometimes years.
Without an editor, you won’t necessarily see those things are there, or you won’t think they need fixing. The editor is there to bring out the best in your work. Writers can’t help but fall in love with their own writing. … An editor will point out areas of text that could be rewritten to improve flow and cohesion.
Professional and catchy book cover and layout design instantly grabs the attention of your target audience and makes them take a second look. A well-designed book cover and layout tells the readers that the author is serious about the work and is a thorough professional.
