#Webinar: Your Pre-Submission Checklist with Stacey Brewer #PromoDay2017


Title: Your Pre-Submission Checklist

Presenter: Stacey Brewer

About the webinar

A pre-submission checklist and discussion to make sure you have everything ready to go and that you don't forget anything before sending your manuscript to an agent or publisher.

About Stacey

Stacey Brewer has been the managing editor for PDMI Publishing, LLC, for the last 4 years and writes fantasy of all flavors, magical realism, and fiction (though she also suffers from the occasional steampunk and sci-fi ambitions). A little time studying journalism was all it took to turn Stacey into a proper grammar fiend, and a love of reading well-written books drives her to continually study the craft of writing and use those studies to help authors refine their work and make it the best it can be.

#PromoDay2017 Giveaways: The Frugal Editor by Carolyn Howard Johnson @FrugalBookPromo



 “Language is a fluid lifeform. To assume that because we once learned grammar one way, that way will always be accepted is fallacious. To neglect researching the language we write in when we so assiduously research the facts for what we write is folly.” ~ Quote from The Frugal Editor
There are gremlins out there determined to keep your work from being published, your book from being promoted. Resolved to embarrass you before the gatekeepers who can turn the key of success for you, they lurk in your subconscious and the depths of your computer programs. Whether you are a new or experienced author, The Frugal Editorwill help you present whistle-clean copy (from a one-page cover letter to your entire manuscript) to those who have the power to say “yea” or “nay.”
The Frugal Editor: Do-It-Yourself Editing Secrets for Authors is a complete course of instruction under one cover.” ~ Midwest Book Review
“Absolutely essential for beginning writers and a necessary reminder for the more advanced. The mentor you've been looking for.  This book won't collect dust!” ~ Christina Francine, review for Fjords Review
“Using the basic computer and editing tricks from The Frugal Editor, authors can prevent headaches and save themselves time—and even money—during the editing process. It’s well worth your effort to learn them.” ~ Barbara McNichol, Barbara McNichol Editorial
“Writers and editors have a true friend in Carolyn Howard-Johnson. Her word smarts, her publishing savvy, and her sincere commitment to authors and editors make The Frugal Editor a must-have resource.” ~ June Casagrande, author of The Best Punctuation Book, Period and Grammar Snobs Are Great Big Meanies (Penguin) and syndicated grammar columnist

“Carolyn Howard-Johnson has written the most comprehensive and modern guide to getting book reviews that I’ve ever come across. In her usual warm and easy-to-follow manner, Howard-Johnson outlines everything you need to know to maximise your chances of multiple reviews, from writing review query letters, creating reviewer lists, creating and sending ARCs and galleys, making the most of Amazon, making the most of every review, and even how to write your own (for other people’s books) and why you should.  This is an excellent resource that both beginning and seasoned authors can return to again and again.” ~ Magdalena Ball, owner of the online book review site and newsletter, http://compulsivereader.com
 
"Getting well-written and fair reviews is the single biggest block to independent authors and small presses. Carolyn Howard-Johnson takes on the problem head-on in this easy-to-use recipe for book review success. To paraphrase the late great Dan Poynter, your book is your business card so the single best marketing tool you have is to send out copies for review.” ~ Victor Volkman, publisher LHPress
