If Halloween didn't scare you, maybe the thought of Christmas coming at the end of next month will. Where did all the time go? Had you meant to finish a short story for Christmas, or maybe even a book? Or, maybe you have a special manuscript you'd hoped to get done, but you've been stumped about how to do it. For some reason, certain parts of the publishing process elude you. If only you knew the answers.
Here's your chance to find out. Not only that, we have a special offer. That's right, we give free answers to a great many questions from people like you right here in our Ask the Editor Free-For-All. Ask a writing question and our Editors will be happy to answer you.
Here's how it works:
Today, and every first Tuesday of the month, The Blood-Red Pencil hosts an Ask the Editor Free-For-All. We make a call out to e-groups, Facebook, social network friends, and blog followers to come on over and ask questions. Our editors are more than happy to share their knowledge in such areas as submitting a manuscript to an editor or agent, publishing on Kindle, e-books, self-publishing in various formats, as well as the basics of writing. No question is too silly or dumb to ask. We all have to start somewhere.
And, if for some unlikely reason we don't know the answer, we'll steer you to someone who does.
To Submit A Question, Follow These Easy Steps:
Leave a comment below in the comment section. When you do, include your name and blog url or website not only for promo, but so we know you’re not a gremlin. (One link only per person, please!)
One or more of our editors will drop by today and answer your question in the comment section. If an editor feels your question requires a longer explanation, the Editor may indicate more details will follow in a later blog post devoted to your subject. If that happens, you'll be lucky enough to get some extra promotion, along with the possible chance of sending in your profile and book cover jpegs and buy link.
It's not a requirement, but it's a good idea to leave an e-mail address with your comment. It also wouldn't hurt to mention where you've heard about our Ask the Editor Free-For-All.
Others will be asking questions, so be sure to stop by later to see what answers they get. Since some of you are on e-group Digests, questions and answers might carry over through Wednesday or Thursday.
Now that you've got the idea of how it works, you may now begin.
