Are you an early bird writer? Find your kindred spirits on Twitter at the #5amwritersclub. The group was started by one of my most prolific author clients, Khris Chess, who writes Young Adult (YA) novels. The #5amwritersclub has come into its own this week as a top trend on Twitter. I don't quite make it that early, but I'm up and at 'em at 6am, busy editing, editing, editing!

Hi everyone! I just rejoined CAPA after a one-year absence. I live in Exeter, New Hampshire now, after more than 30 years in Connecticut and more than 20 years as a member of CAPA. I couldn't stay away.

I FUMED ACROSS half of Kansas’s boring terrain, fields upon fields of low, nondescript greenery. The upside? I had lots of time to think. That I needed, because I’d picked a bold and possibly dangerous solution to a problem that begged a solution. I’m on my way to Susank to take my sister away from her abusive husband.

Twelve hundred eighty seven miles from my home in Hershey; twelve hundred eighty seven angry miles. My wife said I shouldn’t make the trip. She tried to make…

Copyediting

Posted by Nancy Breininger on August 15, 2017 at 11:15am 0 Comments

A novel that is properly copyedited is a pleasure to read.

This is evident in many of the self-published books I see on Amazon. When I was growing up, reading was a way for me to learn about spelling, grammar, punctuation, people, places, and careers. I trusted books. I am a self-employed copy editor and proofreader and although it’s hard to…

Members Book Page

If you look at the members book page, the books have all disappeared. This is not something I have done, but, as I have been told, an adjustment on the ning. site. I have been told to wait till this is fixed and the books will come back. So please be patient.
