I was asked this question: Since you are self-publishing are you self-editing? My answer? No I am not self-editing my work, the reason being that I have paid for professional editing, and also I have had others look it over for errors.  It’s important to me to get a second pair of eyes. As much …
What do you need when you decide that your writing is good enough? (Hint: just “good enough” really isn’t!) Most writers who want to have their book published, and have it make them money, and they need to start at the beginning of a long journey to creating a good book. A First draft is …
There is that horrible place in between publishing and writing. It’s the place where you write and send out query letters and wait.

When you are writing your first book it seems the book itself is done in a few days. It’s not, there is so much more to do than simply stuff words to a page.  After all the research that goes on in the background it seems the writer has it made.  After all, it’s all …
Why should it take so much time to publish a book? I have half a mind to say that publishing a book will be easier than writing a book, but as I am beginning to look into the information about getting a literary agent, an editor or even some type of help, I’m beginning to …
Revision is not for the faint of heart; it’s a nicer way of saying editing or rewriting.  There is so much work to be done when it comes to revision, and I like to think that it’s because as a writer, I’ve simply changed what I envision my completed project to be.  whoever said a …
