So you've written a book.

You’ve worked hard on your book. You’ve plotted, planned, and written for days, months, even years to get your story onto the page. And you have an entire book to show for it! That’s amazing!

So what’s next?

Before you do anything else, celebrate! Most people haven’t written a book, but you have. Congratulations! Take a moment to celebrate your achievement.

But after that, you need a plan.

How do you know what’s next? What steps will get you from first draft to finished?

I’ve got you covered.

The next step is SELF-EDITING. This means you’re going to go through your manuscript and clean it up yourself. You’re going to ensure your phrasing is polished, the words you chose are ideal, and the story is told clearly and with finesse. It sounds like a big task. It is.

But don’t get discouraged! The process is actually pretty simple. And this Self-Editing Ebook Bundle breaks it down for you.

You’ll learn:
✔️ What editing drafts will work best for your book
✔️ How to create an editing plan and make it work for you
✔️ What things you should keep straight in your book and why
✔️ Why self-editing is the best thing you can do for your book
✔️ How not to get overwhelmed by the details

So if you’ve written a book but don’t have a clue what to do next (whether you plan on using an editor or not), you need this bundle to help you figure out your next steps. Grab your Self-Editing Ebook Bundle today!

Your Coach & Mentor

Melissa Frey

Hello! I'm Melissa Frey, an indie author, book editor, and writing coach who is here to help you write better books more quickly and easily!

I know just how difficult it can be to write, edit, publish, and market a book when no one's shown you how before. When I first started writing (over a decade ago!), I didn't have a clue where to start. It took me nearly ten years to figure out how to finally write and publish the books I knew I was created to write — and I don't want it to take you that long.

That's why I created the resources on my members site: to help you discover the stories you were created to tell and learn how to best share them with the world!

I wish this was available when I wrote my first novel, because this would have streamlined the process for me. Thanks for developing this!
