My brilliant book editor lifelongfriend Penelope Jackson has recently gone rogue, opening up her editing skills to the world at large on a freelance basis to authors of all shapes. And as if that’s not enough! She is also giving us (us! you! us!) the benefit of her publishing expertise on a new blog, penelopjacksoneditor.com.
Aspiring book authors, start with her post on courtesy, acting like a grown-up, being wicked charming on social media, and using real-life word processing software for fun, profit, and the career goodwill of publishers.
p.s. side note: Lawrence Hill’s Black Berry Sweet Juice was also the first book (layout) that I ever worked on. Misty water-coloured memories, etc.
