Review: The Complete Canadian Book Editor by Leslie Vermeer
Sue Archer, Editors Canada
When I first heard about The Complete Canadian Book Editor, I couldn’t help but be intrigued by the notion of a “complete” resource on book editing. I edit the works of self-publishing authors, so my knowledge of the world of traditional book publishing is limited — gained mostly through conversations with other editors and my editing courses at Ryerson. Would this book provide useful information for someone like me, a practising freelance editor who would like to learn more about the inner workings of the book editing profession in Canada? …
It would be impossible to cover everything about book editing in one book, but I believe Vermeer has provided an excellent place to start.
