A note from the author...
I put this checklist together after discovering I was making nearly every rookie mistake, in regards to writing and self-publishing. It was not always like this. I used to be proficient when it came to grammar, editing and evaluating. However, there came a period of ten years where I did not write. Not one word, and in doing so, I suddenly found myself lost in a sea of words and rules I no longer understood or remembered.
I designed this guide to help correct my bad writing habits, and I hope that it gives new writers, or old writers like myself that need a refresher, the edge you need to get published or sell more books!
Covered in this guide:
- Misused words
- Overused words
- Style sheet/checking for inconsistencies
- Paragraph length
- Is your voice appropriate for your audience? Does it remain consistent and in the same POV (point of view)?
- Eliminate repetition and wordiness
- Getting rid of clichés
- Does the theme, plot or topic begin right away, and does it stay on course?
- Comma overuse
- Show vs tell
Also, this includes a free copy of 45 Promo Prizes You Don't Have to Mail. Perfect for new authors trying to market a book on a budget.
