Short and Sweet

Hi everyone!

Just a short post today – I’ve just written another guest blog for the Bloomsbury Writers & Artists website, all about working with an editor. The content is similar to my post on here, but if you’re interested in taking a look, here’s the link:

https://www.writersandartists.co.uk/2015/02/self-publishing-and-working-with-an-editor

If you haven’t already visited their site, it’s a great resource for writers. As well as blogs on different aspects of writing and publishing, they also run competitions and of course produce the W&A Yearbook, a comprehensive lists of agents and publishers and very handy if you’re going through the submission process.

Thank you as always for reading xx

  1. Your guest blog was excellent! Too many self-published authors think they don’t need a professional editor, believing that as writers, they are the best person edit their own work, or that a friend or their beta readers can perform the task. Your book is an investment, and your future success depends on the success of your first book. Despite what many authors believe, grammatical and spelling errors do make a bad impression and will prevent readers from purchasing further work from you.

    1. Thank you for your kind words – I’m so glad you enjoyed the post. Yes, it made so much sense to me to have a professional edit done. I have a series of six books I plan to publish, but if the first one is no good what chance do I have of gaining any sort of momentum with the series? I plan to keep working with Lucy on the next books in the series as well.
