Every book and every story in print is a ticket to some other time or place--some ordinary, some exotic, but always new and sometimes wonderful experiences. These through life transport the reader from ancient biblical lands to modern-day Africa; from the developing U.S. to the country's congested cities of today; from life's amusing moments to shared dispair; and from darkness to light.

 

 

Editor Jim Woods offers to would-be authors his tips and instruction on writing, and advice on approaching literary agents and publishers. TWO DOZEN LESSONS FROM AN EDITOR is a valuable tool for writers. This book is designed, by use of 34 examples and referral to the author's personal experiences as both editor and author, to help writers produce manuscripts less likely to be rejected prematurely by publishers and their acquisition agents.

Subjects covered, at times with tongue-in-cheek humor, include: Abbreviations, Capitalization, Clarity, Continuity, Dialogue, Italics, Modifiers, Narrative, Prepositions, Punctuation, Rules, and more.
