My issue is pretty much one that I guess I’ve gotten myself into…but here’s the skinny…
I write in Scriv - love it. But when the MS is done for a new book I have to compile it out to a plain jane MSWord doc to send to my book editor.
She edits it and then sends it back to me with the full comments and notes on each and every single change she suggests. I pour over the 300+ pages, item by item - accepting most but not all.
When that’s done, I open up a brand new Scriv file - and then slowly copy/paste each of the scenes into the new Scriv. MY issue with that is that I have a ton of italcs that I use for everything from spaceship names - RN Marwick - to characters thoughts…and I have to do it all manually, page by page.
I miss some. I know, and yes I do do 2 passes…and yes others have tried to suggest diff use but all of same do NOT work for me. Italics NEVER get saved - in fact no font stylings come across the divide tween Word and Scriv…sigh…
So my query is – does anyone know a book editor who would accept a Scriv file directly - edit in that format and then return it back to me?
I pay good money for the editing but need to find a better way can anyone help here?
