Claudia Suzanne - Musical Line Editing for Authors
Guest: NAIWE’s Ghostwriting Expert Claudia Suzanne
Do you know about the polish step between the final rewrite and line/copy editing? It’s called Musical Line Editing (MLE), and it’s the ghostwriter’s secret ace-in-the-hole to transform a good manuscript into a marketable literary property. In fact, MLE is exactly the type of polish traditional publishers used to do on all their acquired titles, but now can only afford to do for their high-end authors. That’s why today MLE is a function of professional ghostwriting, and you can learn to apply it to your own manuscript in this mind-blowing webinar.
Here’s what you can expect to learn in this class:
- The purpose of the first and second drafts
- The needs of the reader
- The true meaning of a well-constructed book
- How to elevate a book from good to sale-able
Duration: 59 minutes
