Writer's Who Mean Business,
I wanted to personally invite you to attend this week's meeting with speaker Elisa Taylor, who co-wrote 30 Magical and Memorable Family Vacations. She's going to talk about how a business book can support business and the process we used to create her book. The venue this time is the Club House at the Fairmont at Willow Creek, 200 South Lexington Dr., 7pm to 9pm. The room is very nice, and we're going to provide some wine, drinks and snacks to enjoy the evening. I also co-wrote this book, which is why I'm celebrating, too. It took almost two years to get this book done. So it's an accomplishment worth celebrating.
Additionally, I will be accepting Sample Chapters for your books to provide an overall FREE consultation on it and feedback. I do this about twice a year, and if you've been waiting for me to do it again, come on out to the party. I will personally take your submission. Make sure you include contact information so I can respond to you.
Now here is an informational article for your enjoyment.
Don't Try this at Home ... Self-Editing
I run into writers who are also professional editors. I'm sure they're all very good at their jobs. These same writers often get it into their heads that they don't need an editor -- they're editors. Most of the time I can talk them out of the "I-know-how" tree and back down to the ground and their best interests. These writers are often skeptical of my intentions since they falsely believe, "Well, she's just trying to make money." I am naturally in business to make money; but I'm not telling people they need an editor because I'm trying to make money. I'm telling them what I'll just call a "flat fact," which goes like this: even the editor needs an editor.
Here are the reasons why even if you're the queen or king of editing, you, too, need an editor:
