What the hell am I on about?
It will be a great advert for the indie market as a whole–or not.
There are good writers, but we all know there are bad (delusional) writers, as well. So only the good need apply (you will be vetted). If we succeed, you never know, there may be another book the following year with another selection of writers.
I’ve dropped out. I stuck up my hand to help sort through the entries, and because I wanted EVERYONE to take part I, rightly or wrongly, offered to be the editor and I got carried away. Apparently, I destroyed ‘voices’ and hurt the feelings of authors. What can I say, I’m a tough editor and I hate sloppiness. ‘Voice’ or not, there is no excuse for over-wordiness, poor grammar, bad spelling or lack-lustre content.
Still, good luck, Steve, and to the rest of the authors my best wishes also.
Btw, my rates for editing . . . no, I’m joking. Never again!
John Hudspith comes fully recommended though. Happy editing!
