Completed 50,000 word manuscript of a referenced self help book on work ace bullying.
Needs final editing, aNd feedback on any parts of the structure that don't seem to flow well or paragraphs out of place.
Has already been appraised twice so I don't expect major changes, just a final edit to tidy sentences and paragraphs and make more succinct if needed.
Most important is my concern about use of references. I wish to Avoid having to seek author permission. Most references are brief facts although a few references are quoted a few times. If I don't cite the source but include facts, eg about the prevalence of bullying, will i lack credibility.?
I want the path of least resistance, but where I am covered against plagiarism.
Ten pages are currently being reviewed by a lawyer so will need separate minor editing in about 2-3 weeks time.
Also opinion sought on whether to keep a strong Australian emphasis, or will this limit readership?
