This little test is meant to show you the kinds of things that copy editors look for and will correct in your manuscript. Your results should help you decide how much editing your book is going to need. Don't worry if you did poorly, as even copy editors sometimes get confused by these issues. If you got all the answers right on the quiz, you still need an editor! A fresh pair of eyes will see things you may have missed.
The best-selling authors have the best editors! Do they get the best editors because they are successful? Or are they successful because of the good editing? Hmmm . . . .
