I won! I won! I won Mousetrapped!
Usually, when I blog about people winning books, it’s about someone winning one of my books. Today, I am excited to report that I won a book! I won a hardcover copy of Catherine Ryan Howard’s book “Mousetrapped.”
If you have been reading my blog for a while, then you know that I am a big fan of her blog Catherine, Caffeinated and her book Self-Printed for their spot-on, humorously delivered and accurate advice on self-publishing. She is like the Tony Robbins of Self-Publishing to me, so I’m actually really excited to be receiving an autograph copy of “Mousetrapped,” a book about her travels to Florida.
The timing couldn’t have been better.
Lately, I have been having a hard time following her advice about editing, even though I KNOW it’s great advice. I have had a hard time coming up with the $50 a month I pay to the kind lady who is doing a round of proofreading on “Solitude” (my sincerest gratitude to the ever-patient Tracy Elisabeth Marina) – which received content editing (my deepest thanks to Stephen Douglas) but needs better line editing – and the nice lady who is line editing “Warmth” for free experienced the tragic loss of her fiance, who was only 27 years old (my heartfelt condolences to Aurora Martinez)…
So I was going to blog about all the troubles I am having with editing, but fortunately, I have something more fun to blog about. So yay!
I’ll just have to post about the difficulties of editing on a tight budget later.
