The Waiting Game …

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Have been so frustrated with cover and interior design process with self-pub company that I finally called and demanded to speak with a supervisor … Got one, stated my concerns … She had a look at the interior design page breaks and admitted they were “ugly.”  She then promised that both cover and interior would be fixed up by Tuesday … Will this actually happen?  And will I like the results?  Publishing self or otherwise shouldn’t be this tough for an author.  But it certainly has been for me!

New Year, New Attitudes

It’s been a long while since I wrote a blog.  Life gets busy, and I’ve been battling with a rather poor editor … the one my publisher assigned to my book, “Lost and Found in London.”  If my blog can be of any help to other aspiring writers, I want to warn them about poor editors, who either don’t know basic grammar or want to change the writer’s voice … or both.  I got the latter and have been fighting to save my piece of art even since I signed on the dotted line.  My first message for 2011?  Let the writer beware!
