I have a hard enough time editing non-fiction, but here’s a good article on editing a novel. I get asked about the editing process frequently enough, especially by new or would-be authors. We don’t publish fiction yet, but that doesn’t keep people from cornering me and hoping I’ll share my ignorance in that area as well!
There’s a good article that will give you a feel for the process at The Picador Blog. While the details are different, a non-fiction writer/editor can relate.
