Welcome all you wonderful writers,
Cara Grandle here.
If you would like to listen to this post instead of reading it, here is my podcast link with a little more information and some sass. Life Caraphrased.
Today’s Seekerville post will add to your resource pile. I would like to introduce you to several up and coming or newly-released craft tools. Some are books and some are moooooore than books.
If you don't have access to the podcast through iTunes above, here is a link. Life Caraphrased-Seekerville Edition.
First of all, hats off to Julie Lessman who let me blog in her place. To say thank you, I’d like to give a shout out to her Non-fiction book, Romance-ology 101.
Julie will teach you how to keep the careful balance between the gas pedal and the brakes when writing the passion in your romance.
And now on to our next introduction.
Did you know that Karen Ball and Erin Taylor Young have put their heads and experience together and wrote a new non-fiction series? The first short book in the series, Finding and Working with an Editor will release on March 15, 2018. Available for pre-order now. Here is a blurb:
Finding the right editor can be daunting. And the wrong editor? Devastating! How do you know who (or whom) to trust? Easy. Use the insider information, tested tips, and wealth of worksheets shared by a seasoned editor to guide you.
And for a straight up grammar, punctuation, usage craft book, how about checking our Joyce K Ellis’s Writing with Excellence 201.
She adds a clever charm to all the gritty craft layers. Joyce has kindly offered to provide a GIVE AWAY!!! ANYONE who leaves a comment will be added into the drawing.
And if you soak up all you can from those, then you will love adding Melissa Jagears’s new writers life hack.
Seriously, this non-fiction tool is a must. If you haven’t met Melissa yet, let me tell you she is one sharp cookie. She’s managed to use some of the engineering-math-y type tools that are hidden behind the scenes inside both WORD, OPEN OFFICE and SCRIVENER to make a search-and-destroy-weasel-words cheat that will save you loads of time in your editing process.
Seekerville people can download the templates or macro code for free using coupon "SEEKERVILLE" until the end of February. Here is a blurb about her craft tool and a link:
