My New Editing Webinar Plans


Editing Made Easy, A Free Webinar

Mary Marvella Edits      Editing Magic Webinar

I’m sure you realize the books you read have likely been edited by several editors. Can you afford to pay several editors? The more you know about editing the better your books will be. I’m not saying you don’t need an editor, but the cleaner your work, the easier your editor’s job will be. As a former language arts teacher and now a tutor, I take the different levels of editing seriously.

Here is your invitation to attend a free webinar on self-editing made easy.

I will share the errors and problem areas I encounter when I am editing for Gilded Dragonfly Books and as a freelance editor and ways to fix those errors. I will show you ways to spot errors in your writing before you send it out.

Congrats on the new business! Can’t think of anybody better to do this. I have learned so much from you–I have a Master’s degree, but you continue to make me a much better writer than I ever was before. Good luck! When everyone knows you as I do, you’ll be turning people away.

Sleep captured Gwen in its gentle arms and eased her into her fondest memory. She was three years old and playing in her sandbox, the one mama said had been hers once upon a time. A child she’d never seen walked up to her sandbox and stood, staring at her.

Depression and the Holidays

This is filled with things we need to consider!

Between the Beats

It’s the holiday season. We’ve passed Thanksgiving and now Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year’s is here. Somewhere in the midst of all that celebrating you suddenly feel as though the bottom dropped out. Shopping, caroling, entertaining, parties; whatever you’re doing and wherever you are, you just feel overwhelmed.  Maybe you realize you’ve spent more than you should have. Perhaps you forgot to invite someone to your party or forgot a party you had said you’d attend. Your in-laws are coming and you need to get the house in order. A dozen things could trigger that sinking sensation. Anxiety and depression during the holidays is more common than you’d expect.
