Professional Polish: Mastering the Four Personal Qualities for Business Success

You’re probably wondering to yourself, “What are the four personal qualities?”  Well, I’m still trying to figure that out myself!  Just kidding!  You’ll have to read the book to find out.

I have exactly T-minus 20 days to finish the manuscript.  At the end of this month, I have signed a contract stating that I will turn my manuscript over to my editor at St. Martin’s Press.  She should have a fairly easy job editing my work, considering I have two editors on my end who help me polish the chapters soon after I finish them.

And just in case you’re wondering what an edited manuscript looks like, here are some samples.

Don’t worry; it’s not as bad as it appears.  These red marks indicate that I have a tough, yet thorough editor!

It’s her way of showing me that she loves me and cares about my success.  I am grateful for my editors because they make my manuscript sing!
