Welcome Harmony Kent

Harmony Kent is a fellow member of the Rave Reviews Book Club. I’m about halfway through one of her books called The Glade. I’m really enjoying it too.

Hi there! Thanks for joining me on my awesome fourteen-day blog tour with 4Wills Publishing and my fantastic host for today! You can find details of my other stops here: 4Wills Author Page.

I published my first book, THE BATTLE FOR BRISINGAMEN, in May 2013. I soon followed this up with the award winning mystery/thriller THE GLADE in November 2013, and my first Young Adult fiction book, ELEMENTAL EARTH, in July 2014.

Today, am promoting my latest work, POLISH YOUR PROSE. This is my first non-fiction book, and is a powerful new guide that gives essential editing tips for authors.

Lots of books have been written on the art of writing, and here—at last—is a guide that will teach you the essential techniques of editing your own book. This will help you turn a promising manuscript into a published novel. And, it does this without the jargon. You don’t need to know all the grammatical terms in order to make use of this book. You don’t need to know the definition of a split infinitive, a comma splice, or a ‘to be’ verb, as this manual explains these in detail in easy to understand terms, and a lively and engaging style.
Chapters on Passive Writing, Tense, Point of View, Dialogue, and other techniques take you through the same processes an editor would go through to polish and perfect your manuscript. Good writing is nothing without good editing. Learn the secrets of good editing and writing with this essential author reference, which offers so much more for so much less.

As well as being an award-winning author, I am an accomplished editor and proofreader. My passion is helping Indie Authors to successfully achieve their goals and dreams.

Excerpt from Chapter Nineteen: Proof It …

“Proofreading your book is essential. You must not EVER rely solely on your spellchecker. As it will lead you astray. One of the more amusing things I came across recently was while reading a local newsletter:

While proofreading this newsletter we were struck by how many please for help there have been.

It might be worth noting that my spellchecker didn’t catch that when I typed up this book. The word, of course, wants to be ‘pleas’.
It is also a good idea to put your book away for a week or two, minimum, if you intend to proof it yourself. This way, your brain will come at it fresh and not insert what it ‘knows’ should be there.
When we proofread, we don’t just read in the normal way. …”
