Journalism/writing skills you need as a publisher
The editor’s pet-peeves
Jim Perlman is fanatic about typos. He is driven mad if a book is published with any typo or error. To make sure this doesn’t happen he proof reads the entire book four to six times. He also works very closely with the author and sometimes hires outside help to proof read.
Perlman says to be a good editor you must proof read. Another thing you must be first-rate communication skills with a number of people. To publish you have to talk with writes, printers, reviewers and designers.
Also, work on spelling and have solid writing skills.
