Product description

Product Description

The Starter Guide for Professional Writers contains everything to know so that you can begin earning money for your writing. Ten chapters address your questions and concerns as you write, revise, release, and promote your first (or second, or third) published story, offering an on-the-ground view of publishing and focused on using inexpensive resources (after all, writers should make money off their writing, not pay for it!). Covering everything from how best to use a thesaurus to how to handle editor deadlines, plus almost 50 pages of marketing advice, its holistic perspective builds skills writers will use at every stage of their careers.

Cynthia "Cyn" Duby says: "I was very leery of hiring an editor and now I don't know what to do without one! [Therese] is extremely thorough, makes excellent suggestions...and has given me, not only global suggestions, but also incredible line by line edits. My writing has vastly improved and my confidence has grown immensely. She not only is a very talented writer and editor, but she also knows the business... If you want your manuscript the best it can be to send to agents or publishers, use Therese."

Author Zahara Heckscher says: "Therese is a talented writer and editor...She provided essential big picture suggestions for my novel with excellent ideas for conflict and character development as well as a close read with page by page comments to improve the draft. She made excellent and specific suggestions that improved my novel—and helped me strengthen my craft as a writer."
