Writer's Summit Tip #16:
Make sure your editor is good at pointing out ambiguities in your text.
For example, "Tom, Dick and Harry went into the store. He bought a book."
Which "HE" is being referred to? This points out one of the many reasons authors can not edit their own books. Authors are just too familiar with the story line and have trouble seeing flaws like this. The author knows which 'HE' because he wrote him there. The reader, however, may not share the exact vision and needs some clarification.

Writer's Summit Tip #6:
Write a sub-title for your book. Test it for usefulness. Does it tell people what to expect when they open the book? Can you tell if it is a novel or a biography, historical, current or futuristic? Can they tell the general topic of the book instantly? They need to be able to. You have about 2 seconds with a potential customer, when they take your book off the shelf and browse it. If they don't like it, they'll put it back within 2 seconds. Don't believe me? Go to your favorite bookstore and watch the customers.
