Description : Editing is a tricky business. It requires analytical flair and creative panache, the patience of a saint and the vision of a writer. Transforming a manuscript into a book that edifies, inspires, and sells? That’s the job of the developmental editor, whose desk is the first stop for many manuscripts on the road to bookdom—a route ably mapped out in the pages of Developmental Editing. Author Scott Norton has worked with a diverse range of authors, editors, and publishers, and his handbook provides an approach to developmental editing that is logical, collaborative, humorous, and realistic. He starts with the core tasks of shaping the proposal, finding the hook, and building the narrative or argument, and then turns to the hard work of executing the plan and establishing a style. Developmental Editing includes detailed case studies featuring a variety of nonfiction books—election-year polemic, popular science, memoir, travel guide—and authors ranging from first-timer to veteran, journalist to scholar. Handy sidebars offer advice on how to become a developmental editor, create effective illustration programs, and adapt sophisticated fiction techniques (such as point of view, suspense, plotting, character, and setting) to nonfiction writing. Norton’s book also provides freelance copyeditors with a way to earn higher fees while introducing more creativity into their work lives. It gives acquisitions, marketing, and production staff a vocabulary for diagnosing a manuscript’s flaws and techniques for transforming it into a bestseller. And perhaps most importantly, Developmental Editing equips authors with the concrete tools they need to reach their audiences.

Description : A comprehensive guide to self-publishing, with 5 essential steps to publish a book the professional way! Industry-expert with 30 years experience gives tips, do's and don'ts on how to prepare, edit, design, proofread your manuscript and upload it to print-on-demand. 5 steps from raw manuscript to published book. Must read for writers of all levels . This book is written for writers: who want to self-publish who want a professionally published book who want a book that makes them proud In this book, the self-publishing process is narrowed down to five steps from raw manuscript to published book. Five steps which are essential basics for self-publishing novices who want to publish professionally and credibly. Information on self-publishing and POD is easily available in print and online--so much so that the process has become confusing and overwhelming for a writer with no previous experience in publishing. Newbie self-publishers are stumped by the terminology, by what the various options entail, and whether they need all that is offered. This book helps to demystify the process. Self-publishing has become the preferred option for writers over the last decade. More recently, it is acknowledged in literary circles as a legitimate form of publishing for serious writers. The caveat to this acceptance is that authors who choose to self-publish must ensure their books meet industry standards in content and design. The onus is on YOU the writer to keep your book PROFESSIONAL--in editorial and design. The adage 'if its worth doing, its worth doing well' should be the cardinal rule in self-publishing. There are too many sub-standard books vying for attention on global bookshelves--don't let yours be one of them! Take ownership and pride in your work. Your content should be accurate, concise, and relevant. Keep it professional! The aim of professional editing is to ensure accuracy and readability. Not everyone who calls themselves an editor has the expertise to do a book edit. Hence, opting for free editing by a non-professional to save money is risky. In self-publishing, the power is always in your hands. You have control over what is edited out and what stays in. Use that power wisely. An experienced proofreader catches mistakes that often escape the editor, designer, and even the writer. Traditionally, a book editor checked editorial content; while a proofreader focused on overall design and page layout. With the advent of electronic- and self-publishing, you will often find both functions being performed by one individual. You need to be careful of conflicting messages from amateur DIM-ers (Did-It-Myself-ers). Ebook conversion software is becoming increasingly user-friendly. It may be worth your time/money to order ebook conversion through your POD service. I use IngramSpark to publish, as I feel it is worthwhile to just click on the 'ebook conversion' button and let them automatically convert the files, do a back-end check, and upload the book directly to their database. POD companies are updating to user-friendly methods all the time. What is available today could be streamlined out of existence tomorrow.

Description : The legendary Canadian book editor presents this “remarkable, four-decade romp through the back rooms of publishing.” —Toronto Sun Scottish-born Douglas Gibson was drawn to Canada by the writing of Stephen Leacock—and eventually made his way across the Atlantic to find a job in book publishing, where he edited a biography of none other than Leacock. But over the decades, his stellar career would lead him to work with many more of the country’s leading literary lights. This memoir shares stories of working—and playing—alongside writers including Robertson Davies, Mavis Gallant, Brian Mulroney, Val Ross, W. O. Mitchell, and many more. He reveals the projects he brainstormed for Barry Broadfoot; how he convinced future Nobel Prize winner Alice Munro to keep writing short stories; his early-morning phone call from a former prime minister; and his recollection of yanking a manuscript right out of Alistair MacLeod’s reluctant hands—which ultimately garnered MacLeod one of the world’s most prestigious prizes for fiction. Insightful and entertaining, this collection of tales goes behind the scenes and between the covers to divulge a treasure trove of literary adventures. “He makes his life in publishing sound like great fun.” —The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

Description : The selections in this survey of the narrative and lyric poets of Confederation and the later nineteenth century have been chosen to remind readers of the distances and diversities involved as Canadians struggled toward nationhood. Along with essays on Sangster and Mair, the first poets consciously writing of the Canadian scene and the Canadian identity, there are individual studies of Crawford, Roberts, Lampman, Scott and Service. Some of the authors analyse a single work in a poet's canon; others consider several themes or evaluate a poet's philosophical or religious position. To these essays are added three by Norman Newton, George Woodcock and Roy Daniells on the era of "high colonialism". The book contains ten pieces published in the journal Canadian Literature over the last thirteen years and five new ones written specifically to enhance this collection.

Description : The United States and Canada share the longest border in the world, maintain one of the closest alliances, and are notably similar in many ways. Yet the two countries also have important differences, including sharply contrasting political institutions. In The United States and Canada, Paul J. Quirk has gathered a distinguished cast of contributors to present an integrated comparative examination of the political systems of the United States and Canada-with special attention to the effects of political institutions and their interaction with political values, geographic and demographic factors, and other influences. The volume explores the differences between the American presidential (or separation-of-powers) system and the Canadian parliamentary system-focusing on electoral and party systems, executive leadership and the legislative process, bureaucratic influence, and federalism. It proceeds to examine patterns of governance in a wide range of issue areas: economic policy; climate-change policy; healthcare policy; civil rights/integration and immigration; and abortion and gay rights. A sweeping comparative account, this volume serves as an authoritative guide for anyone interested in why the two countries differ and where they might be headed.

Description : Although varieties of North American English have come in for a good deal of linguistic scrutiny in recent years, the vast majority of published works have dealt with American rather than Canadian English. This volume constitutes a welcome addition to our linguistic knowledge of English-speaking Canada. While the focus of the volume is primarily synchronic, several of the dozen papers it contains offer a diachronic perspective on Canadian English. Topics range from general issues in Canadian lexicography and orthography to sociolinguistic studies of varieties of English spoken in all major geographical areas of the country: Atlantic Canada, Ontario, Quebec and the West. A theme common to many of the articles is the relationship of Canadian English to American varieties to the south.

Description : Post-Colonial Literatures in English, together with English Literature and American Literature, form one of the three major groupings of literature in English, and, as such, are widely studied around the world. Their significance derives from the richness and variety of experience which they reflect. In three volumes, this Encyclopedia documents the history and development of this body of work and includes original research relating to the literatures of some 50 countries and territories. In more than 1,600 entries written by more than 600 internationally recognized scholars, it explores the effect of the colonial and post-colonial experience on literatures in English worldwide.
