You may or may not be rooting for one of the teams in the Super Bowl on Sunday, but you should be rooting for yourself. Get ready for your own Super Bowl of writing, whichever may be your choice: finishing a manuscript, submitting one to an editor or agent, or perhaps self-publishing.
You don't have to do it alone. Our Editors are all ready to assist and keep you from fumbling.
Here's how we do it:
Today, and every first Tuesday of the month, The Blood-Red Pencil hosts Ask the Editor Free-For-All. I send out e-mail invations to various e-groups, Facebook, social networks, blogs, and anyone else I can think of, to come on over and ask our Editors questions. You'll receive valuable tips about submitting manuscripts, publishing on Kindle, e-books, self-publishing in various formats, along with writing basics.
Don't be bashful. No question is to dumb. We all start somewhere.
And, if Editor here can't supply an answer, we'll recommend someone who does.
To Submit A Question, Follow These Steps:
Leave a comment in the comment section below. Be sure to include your name and blog url or website, not only for promo, but also so we know you’re a real person. (One link only, please!)
One or more of our Editors will drop by today and answer your question in the comment section. If it seems your question may need a longer explanation, the Editor may later devote an entire blog post on your topic. If that's the case, you'll be fortunate enough to get extra promotion, along with the possibity of forwarding your profile and book cover jpegs and buy links.
It's not required, but helpful if you leave an e-mail address along with your comment. It also doesn't hurt to mention where you've heard about our Ask the Editor Free-For-All.
Since others will be asking questions which you may also like to know about, you're invited to check back to see what shows up later. Since some of you are on e-group Digests, questions and answers might carry over through Wednesday or Thursday.
That's how the game is played. Now, get ready for your Super Bowl. Ask a question and get an answer.
