"The Complete Canadian Book Editor provides students, teachers, and working editors with the background information and specific skills they need to train for in-house or freelance work as a book editor. Its orientation is practical and skill based. Chapter by chapter it describes the practices and processes involved in book editing that will help emerging editors understand what will be expected of them in a book-publishing role and to position themselves appropriately for potential employers and clients. It also connects book editing to a larger body of communication theory and economics. The book begins with an overview of book publishing and a brief history of professional editing. Then it moves into specific tasks for which book editors may be responsible: acquiring manuscripts, offering contracts, working with authors, preparing a manuscript for publication, working with other editors, understanding design and manufacturing, and collaborating with sales and marketing staff. Throughout, the book presents exercises to practise specific skills and tasks, and provides models of particular documents and practices, inviting readers to reflect on them. Book editing involves so much more than dotting i's and crossing t's. The Complete Canadian Book Editor is intended to introduce the breadth and depth of the profession to working editors, would-be editors, self-publishing authors, and anyone who wants to know more about how book publishing works."
