This is where I draw a picture of a stick-figure reader strangling a stick-figure author

I posted this over on Facebook earlier today, but I felt the need to share it over here as well.


It always absolutely blows my mind when I read an author' post saying that he's edited his own book and it may not be perfect, but it's pretty good for a self-published author.


*sigh* THIS is why some people refuse to read self-published books ... because they (and I definitely do not mean ALL but a good majority) find it okay to put out for purchase books that are not up to the standards that readers expect when buying a book.

Readers are paying you for a book and then spending several hours, at the least, reading your story. Please do not cheat them in this way.

For the next 12 days (I added an extra week), Hyde 'n' Seek Editing is still giving authors a discount on their editing in celebration of The Gal in the Blue Mask's 1 year birthday.

Please contact me and let me help you make your book the best that it can be.


Note: You don't have to hire me, but please please PLEASE hire someone.
