Re editing your writing   Leave a comment

For all those at the self editing stage of your writing, I suggest you have a hard copy printed off. It really is amazing in the difference you will see from reading this, and what you see on the screen. When having it printed, if you increase the size of the font and line spacing, you will be able to add notes wherever you find something that needs adjusting. I feel sure that like me, you will be pleased at the results you will obtain after using this method.

Please let me know if you found this of help.

Re my new novel   Leave a comment

Well, Tigerman is pleased to say that I have finished it, and now busy going through it to edit and revise it. This I might add, is not the first time of doing so. I had a hard copy printed off and made up notes from that, and now in the process of putting all the revisions I made on the computer. Once finished, I will then have another hard copy made and go through it again. After that, I will run it though an online editing program, before having it professionally edited. Although this may sound a lot of work, I know it will help in  my achieving a well written book. With a mixture of love, sex and drama, I think it will make for interesting reading.

Deadly Affair   Leave a comment

The above, is a working title for my first novel, which I am presently working on. This is a romantic love story, containing steamy sex scenes, along with high drama events that occur both in England, and high in the Italian Alps. If all goes according to plan, I hope to have it completed, edited and published in the coming months.
