How to paraphrase & add in-text reference correctly?

Here is the practical question at english class of my high school and I am looking for the model answer of it to understand.

below,


Write a sentence paraphrasing the following text and add a correct in-text reference: 

"Book publishing is very much a global industry and is dominated by a number of large multinational corporations that often have extensive commercial operations, of which publishing is only one. At the other end of the scale are smaller commercial businesses, family-run publishing houses, professional societies, and academic institutions that often concentrate on niche publishing for a specific audience (Weller, 2000)." 


The quotation is from page 398 in the book "The Writer’s Handbook" edited by Barry Turner published in 2005.

Here is my answer(inside 「」) and hope you to check it 「"Publishing books is a very global industry, and in many cases is dominated by many large multinational corporations with wide commercial activity. Narrow for a specific audience Specialized academic societies and academic institutions (Weller, 2000) who often focus on domain publishing. " (Turner, 2005, p.938)」

However, is this the correct way to cite 2 different resources? (Weller, 2000) & (Turner, 2005, p.938) are different, when I cite one book and the book also cited from another book, how should I write it?

You can cite two different sources that way if one of the sources provides you with a page number and the other does not. If the first book was cited from another book, you can include them both in the same pair of parentheses: (Weller, 2000; Turner, 2005, p.938). Just make sure you include a semicolon between the two different cited books as shown above so that your readers and teachers know that the sources are otherwise separate from one another.

Ok, furthermore, don't I need to put anything like "(Ed.)" ? Because, it says "edited by Barry Turner".

You don't need to include "(Ed.)" as long as Barry Turner is credited as one of the creators of the written work up front.
