  • SilverWood Books - News: SilverWood’s Editing Helps Author get Ebook Deal
    from writing afterwards busy with other things until the idea for The I T Girl came along I realised I was sitting on an opportunity to write something original since we rarely hear about the I T world especially through the eyes of a woman So then I got the bug and along the way discovered a love of poetry Some of my poems are published now and I hope to produce a book of poems some day What made you approach SilverWood and how did they help you After many submissions I finally received some rejections with the feedback it s not quite there yet So I thought the manuscript needed polishing but even a year after finishing it I still couldn t get that fresh perspective Helen Hart had given a talk to my writers group and I felt SilverWood stood out from other self publishing companies offering support and a working knowledge of the industry I received advice and guidance along with the copy edit service and it was a real learning experience What difference do you feel the editing made to your approach with publishers It made a marked difference After completing the edited draft a number of publishers asked to see the whole manuscript based on a chapter submission so I felt I was on the right track then I suspect that Endeavour Press who published The I T Girl would not have accepted it pre edit because they only take completed manuscripts It seems to be the way these days publishers have less time to edit they want something ready to go What plans do you have for promoting The I T Girl I don t have any elaborate plans but I will be approaching book reviewers and I regularly tweet about the story
