What Happens after the Editor Says Yes?


Carrie Rubin does an excellent job answering that question in her post “Contracts, Edits and Errata.” It goes to show how green I am when I confess I didn’t know what an errata is. Carrie explains it and a lot more.

She received an acceptance letter a year ago. It has taken months to go through the editing, re-write and fix process. Now her novel is ready for publication. Next month is the release.

Please visit the link below to learn what happens after the editor says, “Yes, we’d like to publish your manuscript.” Some would say that is when the real work begins.

And, oh yes, congratulations Carrie!

Illuminating Blogger Award


 
Shedding Light to Brighten the Path for Others

A huge thank you to mskatykins of Spineless Wonders for nominating this blog for the Illuminating Blogger Award. Awards are like pats on the back: the sentiment is appreciated and cherished.

MsKatykins has given me feedback and advice to help me grow in my dream of becoming a professional writer. She is a good friend to have. She has a very generous and giving spirit.

Please visit mskatykins at http://spinelesswonders.wordpress.com/2012/08/10/the-illuminating-blog-award/.

Now to the rules of the award:

A random tidbit about me: I am reclusive as I get older. There’s nothing I’d like more than to live on a mountaintop away from civilization. But I fight that inclination because I have never met a likeable recluse. I want to be likeable.

Five bloggers I want to nominate:

Carrie Rubin has a wicked sense of humor. Watch this girl–she is going places. She has a book in its final stages of proofing. No release date yet, but it will be available soon. Carrie offers lots of support to other writers. She’s a great lady. I am one of the cheerleaders on her squad.

Troy doesn’t accept awards anymore. It’s because his writing is so eye-opening and honest about what goes on in his heart and head that readers gravitate to him. Then awards follow.  He puts words together well, with feeling, integrity, and mischief. Even though he won’t accept the award, I’m nominating him anyway.
Asklotta is my favorite e-neighbor. She’s  one I can turn to for advice on life matters, and, like a best friend, she always has an opinion and a wish to help.  I sip e-coffee with her. She sheds light on solutions. And she has my back.
Subtlekate is who I want to be when I grow up. She is genius cradled in self-doubt.  Though extremely talented, there is no arrogance about her. She writes about personal development with sensitivity, honesty, and tenderness. She confronts her own perceived shortcomings, not realizing that in doing so, others see her as brave, bold, and nurturing. She is a role model to look up to.
C J Gorden is like a big sister, sharing what she learns along the way with others. She calls herself a struggling writer. I have consistently found her to offer support and insight for self-improvement in writing skills. She is encouraging and helpful.

These bloggers shed light on things that matter, each in their own unique way. I hope you enjoy getting to know them. They are folks I would enjoy having around my dinner table. I think the conversation would be marvelous.

Social Networking for Loners


Birth Of A Social Networking Loner.

Why am I always the last one to the dance? I didn’t find this post until days after it appeared. I was the 500th person to like it.

(I like nice round numbers, unless I am pumping gasoline. In that case, I end it where it shuts off. I refuse to round up. But then, who cares??)

Carrie Rubin offers insight into the marketing value of social media. It is a very worthwhile read.
