Five Secrets to Painless Revisions

What do you do when an editor with a New York house—or your most-trusted beta reader—gives you the bad news? Your heroine is unsympathetic, your characters have no conflict, and the last half of your book has gone completely off the rails?

What you do is revise your book. But what if you need to do it fast? Where do you even start?

The answer is surprisingly easy.

Sharon Page will reveal 5 secrets to make the revision process painless. Five secrets that will help you answer these questions:

  • What’s really missing in your book?
  • How do you adjust tone without re-writing every word?
  • How can you improve your plot fast?
  • How should you edit your self-published books?
