Help! My book is too long. How can I revise to make it shorter?

In today’s video, the coaches answer the question:
Help! My book is too long. How can I revise to make it shorter?

This question comes from an author who has written more than 140 thousand words in their current novel. Can you relate? Many of us can. We write and write because we think that’s what we’re supposed to do. (News flash – doing some pre work, with a book coach or not, can really cut down on the amount of unnecessary writing you do). Bloated books don’t find their way to the marketplace or to the readers. Here the DBC coaches will help you find ways to cut down your manuscript – where to look, what to do, no matter what draft you’re on.
