Author's Corner by Yvonne Perry

What a busy first quarter. Our team has edited, proofread, formatted or ghosted twelve books since January 1. That’s not to mention the smaller projects such as bios, articles, book reviews, web text and book evaluations. But, there’s always room for more, so let us know if your book needs proofreading, editing, evaluating, or a tear sheet review.

Congratulations to Writers in the Sky editor, Barbara Sharp Milbourn, who has been selected as exclusive editor for southern Californian travel writer, novelist, and nature photographer Linda Ballou. Learn more about Linda at and watch for her soon-to-be-released historical fiction work Wai-nani, High Chiefess of Hawai’i.

I wish to thank all those who participated in Irene Watson’s Reader Views Literary Award for 2007. Congratulations to all the winners and runners up. Writers in the Sky Creative Writing Services is pleased to present to Alan B. Robbins the $100 cash prize for Best Creative Writing of the Year Award. Contests like these allow the public to become familiar with many talented self-published authors. I hope many more of you will participate in the 2008 contest.
