I want to improve my writing
I’ve written some posts about spelling, grammar and punctuation you can check out. You’ll find free tips, helpful reminders and useful recommendations in these posts.
My shop – The Lore Store – has a growing range of downloadable content for you to buy to hone your craft.
There are also some great books out there about the craft of writing. Support independent book shops by making your purchases through Bookshop.org.
I’d need some “how-to” guides
I’ve written some useful booklets and articles covering the topics that I get asked the most about for subscribers to my newsletter, Kim’s Cosy Bookworm Corner.
I’m ready to show my manuscript to the professionals.
When you’re ready for a professional to look at your manuscript, there are a couple of places I recommend to start your search:
The Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP), formerly the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP), is a UK non-profit body promoting excellence in English language editing. Setting and demonstrating high editorial standards, the website contains guides, resources and a directory of more than 700 editors and proofreaders.
Well of course, if you’re seeking a fiction editor, why not start with little old me? I’d love to help you with your book, and if I’m not the right person for you, I’m glad to point you in the direction of others who may be!
I’m ready to put my novel out there
You’ve written your novel, had it edited and now it’s time to get it published. I’ve written some posts about this scary stage of the process covering lots of topics and included some helpful tips, reminders and even some recommendations.
Of course, I’m not an expert in every aspect of the publishing world. Thankfully, there are lots of blogs and websites out there that can help answer your questions too but the one place I find myself recommending the most is:
David is a successful author himself and a marketing guru. His website, newsletters and blog is a treasure trove of information, how-tos and recommendations. David shares his experience willingly and you can be confident that every suggestion, product or method has been thoroughly tested.
