The Unedited Author by Kevin Harris

December 5th, 2011 No Comments

The unedited author by Kevin Harris Most writers have one or two trusted readers-of-drafts, critical friends who are relied on to make suggestions and offer that gentle critique that we didn’t know we needed. And the closer we get to conventional publication, the more likely we are to find ourselves working with an editor who […]

Idea Store and bookleteer

December 22nd, 2010 No Comments
