  1. Pretty component to content. I simply stumbled upon your weblog and in accession capital to
    say that I get in fact loved account your blog posts.
    Anyway I will be subscribing on your feeds and even
    I success you get admission to persistently rapidly.

  2. Thanks for sharing. Some excellent advice! (I’m a dinosaur, who cut his teeth in the world of newspaper reporting, back in 1969-70, so putting a double space after a period is in my DNA).
    One thing that “Indies” can do if they have absolutely NO budget, is to engage several Beta Readers in place of a formal editor. These can be individuals that you trust, such as retired English teachers, other writers, etc., whose abilities are well known, and whose integrity is beyond reproach. Their free service may not be “perfect,” but at least they provide additional sets of eyes that just might see something you missed.

    • I’m with you, Joe. Reliable eyes are available. My local librarian has been a huge help to me, as well as two friends who are well read reading my latest before handing it to the pro. Thanks so much for adding to the conversation! 🙂

  3. Bette, what a great post. Thanks for introducing me to Cassidy!

  4. Thanks, Bette. I hired a pro to handle His Revenge. I always need help. I finished Dog Bone Soup. Loved it and want another book soon. Please say you will continue the story.

    • Lots of great tips here, John. And hiring a pro falls right into them. His Revenge is a great story and I’m sure John Cannon has more in store for us. I love the way you draw the reader into John’s character, those sensory details really make it personal. I’ll post a review on Amazon and Goodreads once its published! So happy to hear you enjoyed DOG BONE SOUP and want to hear more…others do as well. I’ve got a little outline going, so hopefully one of these days we’ll all know more. Have a great day, my talented friend! 🙂

  5. I need these tips. Thank you Bette!

    • Lots of great tips here, Cindy. So glad you found them helpful as well, my friend. Happy writing, editing, rewriting…. Have fun! 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by to join the conversation.
