On Writing - An Understanding of What a Book Editor Does

Posted on March 11, 2010 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

This is the final leg of what has become an unintended trilogy on the book editing profession, and while it might appear to be blantantly self-promoting, I hope it at least will shed a little light on the book-doctoring discipline.

A Need for Definition

A few months ago I published an article I was asked to write that explained the different phases of book editing: critiques, copy/line editing, and developmental editing. I also provided a range…


When Not to Hire a Book Editor

Posted on February 24, 2010 at 10:30pm 0 Comments

Here is an article on When Not to Hire a Book Editor, since on I recently posted an article on When is the Right Time to Hire a Book Editor, and I thought readers might appreciate an opportunity to consider the flip side, of which there most assuredly is one. So here is the article, and I hope those of you will find the information to be of some…

Robert, great to see you come by! Thanks for coming along. I really think you'll like the people here. :)

Best of luck to you too, Robert! I think is a great place to market yourself and meet new people. It's very user friendly. My publisher was authorhouse and they've been great. With the book published comes the real work as I market my book. It's a lot of work, but fun.
You have a Merry Christmas!

Hi Rob,
I went to your web page yesterday,and I think I signed up for the letter.I'm going back to check. Some of the things I have questions about are still in the area of point of view. If you could go further into the definition I think something will click, and pierce my thick skull.

Hey Robert.

Thank you for your most recent feeback. We are in definite agreement on the subject of point of view, especially when it comes to the newbie writer who has not the experience to juggle such in manuscipt format, to the salable satisfaction of editors and publishers at large.
I would further agree that the showing versus telling issue is of crucial importance to anyone trying to break into the true printed book market.
My Best,

Mr. Bacon, I just joined two days ago and would like to take you up on the offer you had in your comments I guess were to Kay Elizabeth about when to hire an editor or which famous authors used editors by sending you the first twelve pages or so to my first book, Tender Days, that I just completed. This book is a fictional book loosely based on my teenage years. It follows a group of friends in a low to middle income black neighborhood during the seventies as they complete their three years of high school. The book deals with friendships, relationships and the struggles of intergration during that time period. Please inform me on how I can get you these pages for your review and comments.-David Wayne Green, I (Crisstopher Charlsie)

Robert: Someone reccomended you to me, said you might be able to help. I am 77 yeats old & my handwriting is not the best. Also I do not know how to arrange a manuscript to be interesting. I have an unusual story that I would like help on aboutt Marilyn Monroe. I know there has been a lot of ideas about what really happened to her, which all have been partly wrong. I have first hand info on this subject. I have a publisher lined op for an e-book on this. I need help putting it together. I have one book out that was written by someone else taken from my info on my background. I will send you a copy, just send me your address. Please see my web site before getting back to me. That way you can see I am for real.  Thank you Osie Jackson    ( 828 349 1243
