Join Jessica Brody for an in-depth discussion in this video Your last revision, part of Sell Your Novel to a Major Publisher.
- [Instructor] Congratulations.…Hopefully by now you followed all the steps and tips…outlined in this course and you sold your first novel.…Although this course is designed specifically…to teach you how to sell your novel to a publisher,…I didn't want to end it without giving you a sneak peek…into the rest of the publishing process.…Selling your novel is just the first step…in a long and exciting road…down the path towards seeing your book on a bookstore shelf.…I'll give you a quick glance at what this path looks like…and point out a few things…that I think every author should know…about what happens behind the scenes at a publishing house…as your book is published.…
So let's get started.…As we discussed before, the first thing that will happen…after you've signed your book contract…is you'll most likely to do more revisions…on your manuscript.…Yes, that's right, more rewriting and more edits.…An author's work is never done…especially when it comes to revising.…Your new editor may have already discussed…her planned revisions with you…
