If you have a job like I do, I hope you've adjusted to going back to work today after the Labor Day Holiday weekend!
Even if you don't, how about taking a break for a few moments and learn what other writers are asking and what our editors are answering. Or, perhaps you'd also like to contribute a question. If so, please do so below.That's what the Ask the Editor Free-For-All is all about.
Here's how it works:
Today, and Every First Tuesday of the Month, The Blood-Red Pencil holds our Ask the Editor Free-For-All. We send out e-mail blasts to e-groups, post on Facebook and other likely spots hoping to find those who will admit they don't know everything. We welcome your questions and will provide answers from our able editors. This shortcut will come in handy if you're submitting a manuscript to an editor or agent, engaging in self-publishing, or perhaps just getting your feet wet.
The Blood-Red Pencil is at your service. Ask, and our editors will answer.
To Submit A Question, Follow These Easy Steps:
Leave a comment in the comment section below. Make sure you include your name and blog url or website not only for promo, but so we know you’re legit. (One link only for each person, please!)
One or more of our editors will stop by during the day and answer your question in the comment section. If an editor feels your question needs a more lengthy explanation, you'll get a comment to the effect that an entire post will be devoted to the subject at a later date. If that's the case, you'll be fortunate enough to get extra promotion, and perhaps a chance to send in your profile and book cover jpegs and buy link.
Although it's not a requirement, you're welcome to leave your e-mail address with your comment. Because your question may need a follow-up, it's a good idea if you mention someplace in your comment where you'd heard about our Ask the Editor Free-For-All.
Be sure to come back and check here not only for your answer, but also the answers to other people's questions. You never know what could prove helpful later. Since some of you are on e-group Digests, questions and answers might carry over through Wednesday or Thursday.
No question is too silly. We're all here to learn and share.
Okay, now's your chance. What's your question?
