Recommended reading for anyone trying to self edit!

If you want to edit yourself before sending your short story or novel off to friends, then a literary agent or publisher, I suggest you check this book out. It has been the biggest help to me in making my work actually worth reading!
It covers many topics such as
Show and Tell
Characterisation
POV
Proportion
Dialogue
And much more.

The information is delivered in a matter of fact way and is very easy to follow.
You are set tasks which really help you.
I'm now reading it for the fifth time and I'm still finding areas to improve my work.
