If one is thrown onto one's own resources, a good way to spot at least some of one's previously unnoticed errors is to read the book out loud.

This can also be a good way of noticing when the text doesn't flow very well. If an author is stumbling over something they've written, there's a decent chance that at least some readers will as well. No author wants one of those readers stumbling over their prose to be someone working for a publisher or agent....

For anyone who has been interested in contacting me about editing a book, something I was supposed to be editing later this month is being moved to a later date, so I have an opening in my schedule for the second half of July or the first half of August.
