Hello, I hope all are doing well.
Here, I’m feeling rested and renewed, after taking Saturday off. Sometimes, you must take a break from everything.
Though I was proofreading a manuscript which I’m nearly ready to relinquish to the first proofreader – editor, I was able to clean house, organize cabinets and drawers, while experiencing my manuscript as people will if they purchase any format of an eBook.
Because it reads fairly well, I took the opportunity to listen as a reader and I found this to be extremely helpful.
However, rather than go and try to rewrite yet again I want to give my editor a turn at it.
Author Proofreader and Valued Friend, Jo Elizabeth Pinto will be proofreading and making light edits.
I’ll be taking notes as I read the rest today.
Those notes along with the draft, battered as it is will go to her and I’ll await her magik touch.
After which, I’ll be searching for a Beta reader. I’ll send more information out about this as it develops.
Speaking of editing and proofreading…
We now have two editors and a proofreader for The Writer’s Grapevine Magazine.
When I put out the call for assistance with the magazine, the response was quick and sure.
Once they’re done, Two Pentacles Publishing
Will work their magik.
Thanks ladies for your assistance. It’s much-appreciated.
In the meantime, fall is knocking on the door and soon, swimsuits will be replaced with sweaters and pumpkins will be on every porch rail, stoop and window seal lighted at sunset for all to enjoy.
Then, Thanksgiving will slide up and before you know it, Christmas bells will be ringing throughout the town.
The Writer’s Grapevine Midsummer June July Edition was a smashing success. I’m attaching it here in hope that those who haven’t read yet, will do so and those who have may enjoy it again.
I’m also including the link.
It is also hoped, everyone will share it everywhere they can.
