I know there are at least a few of you out there reading my tiny blog. I would love to know who you are and what you think (about my blog, my books, whatever!). So please if you haven't read any of my work, check it out on Wattpad and leave me a comment there or here! I would love it if you felt so disposed to give me a vote as well!
I know this is a shameless plea for attention but we all have those moments! :) So please help a girl out!
I love what you have posted on wattpad! I voted for you too!ReplyDelete

Beware of self-publishing editors. Their job is to flatter you and NOT "unsettle" you by doing a really good edit. For example, your editor had you delete the opening battle scene of Army of Sorrow. Sure, deleting it was traumatic, but a detailed rewrite might have strained relations. So she pulled a coup with a friendly suggestion that you delete it. That was a great loss to the story.ReplyDelete
This is a rewrite of my deleted comment. It would have been easier to shut up, but I'm aching to see what you could do with a real editor. You should do more of the vivid setting/scene descriptions like you do for the chapter in the weird pottery room. You certainly have a talent for it, but other potentially interesting settings (such as the caves, or the top of the castle, just to name two of many examples) are described only vaguely.
I agree that I need a really awesome editor! I've been querying out my work so hopefully I'll get someone who is willing to push me harder. Thanks for the input! I love a little constructive criticism!Delete
