Editing in Steps (the kind for short legs…)

Words to live by and learn from. http://ow.ly/bAoa3 Lulu’s Blog – The Editorial Process has great advice for writers of every level.They’re right that traditional publishing houses help their writers immensely with fine-tuning a manuscript. What does a self published author have to look forward to? Well, there are friends, family, and a sometimes pricey editor (depending on the author’s word count) to wade through innocent mistakes missed on the first few revisions. These people are invaluable to a writer as is a large publishing house is to a well-known author. Whether an author seeks out professional advice from a publisher or a friend, he or she must always remember what advice comes back negative in a good way. They want to see you succeed. Take what has to be said and run with it. Read more tips from Lulu’s blog to improve your editing.

Don’t forget to visit Panhandling Fantasy or the Dead and Rising homepage to see what’s coming out next from me.

Adam Santo is a SciFi/Fantasy writer who enjoys the quiet moments to sit idly writing stories. His debut novel, Temperature: Dead and Rising, took the world for a ride they would soon not forget. Santo began plotting the second novel, Temperature: Bitter Cold, before the ink dried on his first book. Santo continues to write nonstop because he knows there is always a story waiting to get out. When he is not writing, Santo enjoys quality time with his family and friends, spending the occasional weekend at a movie theater, and reclaiming his youth when his son challenges him to a video game. Santo currently resides in sunny Florida with his beautiful wife and equally beautiful children.
