Let me give you an example:
Steve came into the room and cashed into the crouch. "Hi, he said, "What have you been doing today? I heard your going our with my sister".Seriously? Oh, you have no idea. I have read too many books that read like this. And guess what, my fellow Indies, it gives us ALL a bad name.
Editing your manuscript needn't be that hard of a task if you actually let go of it for a while and allow someone else to have at it. Other people coming fresh to your manuscript will spot things much easier than you, especially if you actually ask them to 'edit your manuscript.' It's not that you're a bad writer, it's just that when you read things you've written yourself, you quite often overlook things. You read it as you intended it to be read and not actually how it was written.
I love a good book. I love to get lost in the pages of adventures. But what I hate is to be jerked from a story when I have to try and work out what the author actually meant to write.
Lecture over... Give your book to an editor and publish this instead:
Steve came into the room and crashed into the cYes, SEVEN errors in total. Did you spot them all?
rouch. "Hi," he said, "what have you been doing today? I heard you're going out with my sister."
So, please - and I am seriously begging you here, Indie authors - get some proper editing done before you publish your book on the Kindle. An extra three or four weeks delay in getting your manuscript published is nothing in comparison to the forever that your published book will remain on its virtual shelf in Amazon's library. Take the time, please. Seriously!
