You Must Do Line Edits and Some Other Stuff to Get On the Shelves of Bookstores

Filed under: Booksellers, Check-it-out, Copy Edits, Touching the Surface, Writing

I’ve got line edits again!  And line edits often feel like this…

I have a quick deadline rushing at me.  Since I’m trying to make sure I boomerang this baby back on time, in addition to working diligently on book number two, I’m going to stream line this blog post and direct you to the always informative and entertaining Jackson Pearce.  Fasten your safety harness because she has some interesting information on publishing that you might not know.  
Just curious–did you know know how bookstores are stocked?  And isn’t Jackson adorable?

  1. Love the picture, Kim!! And thanks for the vlog … great stuff to know.

  2. Ha! Glad you like it. I've got a ton of attempts that were a lot less…"pretty".

  3. Wow. I did not know that stuff about "modelling." Fascinating…and kind of scary! Eek. One more thing to worry about, huh?

  4. Me either…some days it feels like a little bit of a crap shoot LOL!
