Writing & Editing POP and Panache 10-08-2020
An author's words can pull in a reader ... or push him or her away. It's all about the editing that is brought in by another set of eyes.
Did you know that:
-One of the biggest grumbles on Amazon reviews deals with mediocre editing—or lack of any editing.
-Be wary of your own “word blindness” … repeating the same word or phrases ad nauseam in your manuscript is a reader turnoff.
-You should write what you want to write, not what you think will sell. Readers will know you are faking it. Don’t chase fads.

Customer ReviewsSee All
Really informative, but mixed audio quality
Author U Your Guide to Book Publishing is a wonderful podcast. Judith is a writer and consultant with a lot of experience with both traditional publishing and self-publishing. She has wonderful guests and asks great questions. However, the sound quality is generally mediocre. This wouldn’t be awful except that the sound quality on the commercial breaks is excellent, so the contrast between the show and the commercials can be really pronounced. I would give the show 5 stars for content but only 3 stars for audio, which is why I’m giving it a 4 star review.
