  2. http://storitorigrace.blogspot.com/2018/04/why-editor-isnt-bad-guy.html “It seems in Hollywood and even in other circles (not to give a rap and not to say that all self-pubbed authors are like this but this is frequently the case in self-published circles), the editors are the bad guy. They’re the evil grumps that keep the writers from writing freely. I noticed this trend particularly when I watched How to Lose a Guy in Ten Dayswith a friend. Contrary to what the story was trying to portray, what the editor was asking for wasn’t that unreasonable. In the media examples I have these women are not the purest of character (which I also don’t like since I know many editors who are some of the nicest people you could meet), so I’m not defending their attitudes, but I do want to point out that the “obstacles” they’re giving the protagonist are really just what it takes to make a career as a writer.”

If you’ve put blood, sweat and tears into writing a book, you want readers to find and buy it!”

Romance/Women’s Fiction:

  1. http://romanceuniversity.org/2018/04/25/overcoming-your-fear-of-the-semi-colon-with-editor-theresa-stevens-2/Do you rewrite sentences just to avoid using a semi-colon? Editor Theresa Stevens explains the proper usage of the semi-colon, narrative compression (what’s that?), and the importance of creating a likeable character as she critiques another RU reader submission.”
  2. http://romanceuniversity.org/2018/04/27/writing-with-emotion-by-laura-drake-2/ “My goal is to learn something about craft with every new book I write. The Sweet Spotwas my lesson in portraying emotion. All I can say is, thank the writing Gods for Margie Lawson. I knew what I wanted to say before her classes, but didn’t know how to get it on the page.”
  3. http://storyempire.com/2018/04/27/friday-book-cover-kindle-in-motion/ “There’s a new craze on Kindle (at least, it’s new to me) called Kindle in Motion. The books can be read on any device that reads Kindle books, but the covers and insides have motion (hence the name, of course. ) that can be viewed on certain Fire tablets and on the free Kindle iOS and Android apps.” I need to see this!
