"It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood!" --Mr. Rogers
There's a soft breeze ruffling my window curtain and in a little while I'll be sifting through a manuscript.
Since completing, A Gift of Love, A Widow's Memoir, I can't count how many times I've combed through it wearing the editor's cap.
I've polished, checked, and rechecked for clutter, proper punctuation, grammar, tense, chronology and more, to make certain it is ready for submission to an agent, or publisher.
Well, hello Sunday, today I do it again.
There's a strategy to all this proofreading. And, it has to do with marketing.
Drum roll please.
I have decided to self-publish.
