On Thursday, I turned in the developmental edits for my upcoming contemporary sports romance Changing the Play which will be published under a new pen name, Julia Blake.

Authors know that this is cause for celebration. Even though I'd published independently before signing with Pocket Books, I had to admit to being fuzzy on the whole publishing process at traditional houses. Today I'm going to try to walk you through some of the major steps that gets a book from draft to publication using my experience with the second in my Governess series, The Governess Was Wanton.
It seems logical that the first step in publishing a book is to actually write the book. Depending upon where you are in your career and the terms of your deal, however, there might be a whole negotiation before you ever write a word of prose. Selling on proposal is a topic for another day.
Those proposals were really just two to three page synopses of what would happen in the book were I to write it. If you have a completed novel when you strike a deal, the editor can begin working on it immediately. However, you've sold on proposal or there are multiple books in a deal and not all are written, this is the time when an author's got to get to work.

Then, blurry eyed and tired, I turned it in to my editor. Then she wrote me an edit letter which is a document with recommendations about what to change, which parts need to be strengthened, and what new directions she'd like to see the story go in. Often these are very big picture changes to a book that develop character and plot ie developmental edits. Getting a note like that is nerve wracking because it seems like such a huge undertaking. How do I even do that?! Once you've handed in your dev.

I've heard of a lot of different advance structures. So far I have been paid half on signing and half on acceptance of the manuscript. The copy editor is looking for technical, grammatical problems with the manuscript.

This is also the stage where the manuscript is checked for consistency. Copy editors have to be very detail oriented, and I've got a huge amount of respect for them because their job seems impossibly hard to me. This is like a little bible that your book and your series if you wind up writing multiple books in the same world has to adhere to. They're looking for consistency in names, timelines, physical descriptions.
It turns out I'm not a strong timeline writer I'm trying to get better! When I got back my line and copy edits, everything was marked up in track changes. This was my time to then accept or reject the changes in the manuscript. If I agreed with my editor and the copy editor, I would accept a change. I'm the eldest of two sisters, so I would've most often been referred to as "Miss Kelly" and my younger sister would've been "Miss Justine" until either or both of us were married. Once you send back your copy edits, it's time for the pages to be set. This is the first time your book looks like an actual book.
This is particularly exciting because in my case it meant seeing the title page, pretty chapter headings, page breaks, etc. The purpose of looking over a proof is to make sure that all of the changes from the copy edits made it in. It's also a time to sweep for typos.
Thankfully I was far from the only set of eyes on the book because at this point I'd read my own manuscript at least eight times. Try editing something you've written and read that many times. Proofs are the only time that I actually print out and hold my book anymore. I mark up actual pages with colorful pen my favorite is pink which, now that I think of it, may delight or irritate my proofreader and then send photographs of the galleys back to my editor to point out where I found typos.
Proofs are not the time for major content changes to a book. They are, essentially, a last check of the book to make sure everything looks okay. There's a lot more that goes into prepping a book for publication including back cover copy and marketing, but that's a whole separate blog post for another day.
In terms of the editorial process, you're done and ready to move on to writing your next great novel because writers never stop writing. The music helps evoke a mood. It keeps me on track with the emotional direction of a book and makes it easier for me to jump back in after a long day of work and real life. I wrote my Governess series at what felt like a breakneck pace. I would be writing one book in about three weeks, taking a week to edit it, and then using the remaining week to do a polish pass before sending it off to my editor.
All the while, I was usually also tackling developmental edits for the previous book. Hands down, this was my go to song, especially when I decided to completely rewrite the last half of The Governess Was Wanton. I fell in love with his album back in and think he makes some pretty perfect writing music. Every book needs a dark moment, and this felt like a great accompaniment part of all three of my books.

Without hesitation, Othello puts aside his new bride to dash off to the war, which seems to suggest that he values his position in the military above his love.
