Busy and a Rebranding Project

cropped-TheContentEditorBanner.png

A part of my work on this site includes some rebranding work and that means delving into the website code. Not my favorite bit of fussing, honestly. I’ve also been working on editing a couple of short stories and preparing for a Flash Fiction writing challenge for myself to start in August. It’s been a bit busy!

Westercon 69 and My Resulting “To Do” Items

Checklist.

I’m currently attending Westercon 69 in Portland and enjoying both the company of friends old and new, and the panels. I’ve attended quite a few panels on writing and getting published, with many of these geared toward indie and small press authors. As a result of listening to the audience questions, I now have the following items on my list to add to this site.

  • Tips for Hiring an Editor
  • Tips for Working with Editors
  • Signs You Need a New Editor
  • What are General Editing Categories
  • Editing Contracts
  • What is a Style Guide and Why Do You Care?
  • How to Be a Good Beta Reader

Those are just the topics off the top of my head. If you are particularly interested in one or more of these, let me know in comments or on Facebook, and I’ll move them up in the queue. Otherwise I’ll tackle them in some random order.

For those people I have met at Westercon – pleased to meet you! Hope you are having a great convention.

Welcome – and Pardon the Dust

As you can see, this site is brand new and I’m still getting the layout and such set up.

So please be patient and I expect to start posting real information before December 1, 2011.
