What an amazing time to become a published author!

Posted by Arthur Gutch on Thu, May 26, 2011 @ 08:22 AM


There’s an old saying “you are what you read”. I believe it may be more appropriate to say you are what you write! If you’re like many newly minted authors, your book, when it’s finished, will energize you and most probably change your life and the lives of others as your book becomes a permanent addition to the knowledge tree of original authored works.

Editorial Pet Peeves - and how to avoid them in your book

Posted by Brittany Lavin on Mon, Feb 07, 2011 @ 07:00 PM

Copyeditors are, as a group, very patient and forgiving readers. We love noticing nitpicky details and fixing subtle errors to help you present your audience the most polished and professional version of your book possible. We could spend all day moving commas and repossessing possessives, and many days we do. Editors aren’t impervious to frustration, however, especially when we come across the same small exasperating errors over and over again . . . in the course of one manuscript.

What errors make us reach for our red pens every time? We asked the Infinity copyediting staff, “What is your biggest pet peeve?”

*One of the most common mistakes an author can make is punctuating dialog incorrectly — and if it happens once, it’ll probably happen many times. Here are a few simple things to check for when punctuating dialog:

       1. Quotation marks should surround only the text spoken by a character — not the attribution (he/she said), and not reported speech (I told him yes).

incorrect: “The apple tree is too tall to climb, he said.”
correct: “The apple tree is too tall to climb,” he said.
