In this episode, we welcome editor, and award-winner author Stacey Atkinson to the show. Stacey dives into two different important points for you getting your novel seen: writing contests, and good editing. With her debut novel, she has won awards an Honourable Mention for the Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards, as well as a Benjamin Franklin Award for her oh-so-pretty cover. Her wirting is so smooth, and the novel’s East-Coast setting gorgeous. (Don’t miss Stacey’s facebook page. It’s a great reference of funny writing thoughts, useful articles and more)
Stacey also puts on her ‘editor’ hat to help brainstorm ways that self-publishing authors can afford their editor. Because guys, you need your editor, and they need to eat. So what do we writers need? We need a plan!
Kevin and I also take a shot at brainstorming affordability, and come up with a couple ideas. But what are your ideas? Let us know in the comments, and we can brainstorm together.
