Common Errors of Indie Authors

Train wreck at Montparnasse 1895

In my recent hunt for a copy editor I came across Lisa Kelly-Wilson’s website. Lisa worked as an editor for indie authors like: Hugh Howey, Robert Brumm, and David Simpson. Her site is a collection of tips and tricks for dealing with everything from editors, publishers, even covering cover design. I could see it becomes a  solid resource for every new author out there.

She created a pretty handy guide I wanted to share: Lisa Kelly-Wilson’s Common Errors of Indie Authors (70kb PDF). Download it, and do your best to follow it. Your readers and editor will thank you.
