Admitting When Your Book Needs Life

Date: April 23, 2015
By: Stan Washington

It was around midnight and my excitement reached a crescendo as the final words of our book made their way onto the pages from my speedily typing hands. Done! I yelled as I danced around the room. I was so busy writing that I forgot to read the content. To my dismay, the content wasn't flowing. I mean I had a lot of words, but it seemed to be missing something. I had no idea what to add.

We Cried Out For HELP
We sent our information to LMarie and she took it from there. Shocked was the look on my face as the first few pages came back with what seemed like an infinite number of corrections! Taking a deep breath, I reviewed her comments and made or accepted the corrections. When I reread the information she corrected, the book finally flowed. Every sentence was reviewed and every word scrutinized.

Changes were made
She told us when to elaborate and when to be quiet. The book turned out wonderful with her help. She leveraged her 30 years of writing and editing and applied it to our concept. She also gave vital suggestions she pulled from her vast background of writing. She has worked on a very diverse set of books ranging from children's books to adult fiction, to the crane operators test of some state.

Her advice was invaluable!

  1. Thanks for that. I like to give writers a hard time. That means their books will be magnificent. :-)
