Because you are a Shelfari friend, I thought I'd pass on to you a quiz I'm using to promote my new book, the 2nd in the HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers after the award-winning The Frugal Book Promoter.
The Frugal Editor is a must for writers and includes lots of good stuff important for any writer to know. It is, ta da! The Frugal Editor: Put Your Best Book Forward to Avoid Humiliation and Ensure Success.
Check Your Sell-Your-Book Expertise with Carolyn's Quiz
Every writer should know the answer to these or know how to find out :

2. How can a style sheet help me edit my book or work better with my editor?
3. Why do I need to know about indexing?
4. How can I corral Word's Spell Checker to help rather than hinder my editing process?
5. Why is editing important to getting a publisher or an agent when my publisher's editor will help me with that anyway?
6. Why should I rarely send out a cover letter rather than a query letter?
7. Why should I avoid using italics for internal dialogue? How do you avoid using them for internal dialogue?

Hello Bev! How are you? I am a busy woman, here. I am in grad school, working full time and am also working for Dr. Dan Skelton doing publicist work and also trying to agent him. I just met with him Saturday. Sheesh. What IS sleep???
I need to write something for Scribe and Quill and also for Horror Writers. I'll get to that as soon as I can.
Hope all is well.
I notice that you are one of my friends, yet I don't believe I've communicated with you yet.
It's a coincidence, but I have a chapter in my book THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT CAVE CREEK (It's The People) titled
MENDIN' FENCES — the same title of one YOUR books. There's a lot of social drinking in my book too — and one of your publishers is WHISKEY CREEK PRESS.
Is it as interesting to you as it is to me?
