comment References or tips for book editing (self-published books)
We don't have any questions about editing books, but we do have one about writing books: What are good reads about writing?

comment References or tips for book editing (self-published books)
If you want style guide links, these questions may be of interest: What are the most common style manuals? and What are widely-used UK-English style guides?

comment References or tips for book editing (self-published books)
What kind of resources are you looking for, exactly? Style guides? Books about editing? Lists of editors to hire? And wasn't this originally meant to be about poetry editing?

comment “This” vs “that” in past tense narrative
This is essentially a rephrase request, which is off-topic here. Closing, but feel free to edit this into something more substantial.
