The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward To Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success

You may remember my interview with Carolyn Howard-Johnson when she was a guest on Writers in the Sky Podcast. In case you missed that show, you can listen to the archived audio at Anyway, guess what? Carolyn 's book is finally here! She wrote me today with the good news so I'll share her words with you:

Today is my launch day for The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward To Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success and I wanted to share that with your blog audience, Yvonne. I am sending it to you in the spirit of helping them with their writing careers.

Many of you already have my book The Frugal Book Promoter and many of you are using it. I know because I get mail and questions contstantly. Now comes the launch day of the second in my HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers, The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward to Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success.

The thing is, this book isn't just about editing your manuscript. It's --in a sense--about marketing. It will give authors ways to approach agents without causing them to scream obscenities, to query contest judges in a way that will mark them as professionals. It will help each of your readers to juggle their Word programs so they will work to their advantage instead of against them. And yes, it will help authors partner better with their editor. In fact, when authors don't know their editing stuff, they have no way to know if their publisher has provided a good one. What if they're hiring an editor themselves because they are self-publishing. If they aren't knowledgeable beyond good grammar and spelling, how will they know they're paying a good one. In fact, The Frugal Editor even gives writers a check list of how to avoid editing scams.
