I plan on Self-Publishing 10 to 13 stories in a Collection in Electronic Format such as on the Kindle and other forms of electronic media and also produce a limited number of my book in Paperback form with real paper and everything … 🙂
That’s where some of you may come in. I am NEED of one of two things from some of you talented people out there in the world.
First thing I am need of, are proofreaders and/or readers/reviewers of my stories to tighten up my grammar and my typos, and to possibly catch any blatant writing pitfalls I might fall into from time to time, and to tell give me real feedback on each story in regards to critiquing them constructively. I will need a few people to help in this to expedite the process so I can get my collection ready for publication in regards to good story content by mid year which is fast approaching.
Second thing I am need of, are artists to provide me with small black and white sketches pertaining to each and every story. I will then sprinkle those pieces of art throughout the pages of the book to visually capture and entrance the eye and add a little bit of spice to the book 🙂
For both requests at needing your help, I am sorry to say I cannot compensate any who might help me in my endeavor. I will most assuredly will give credit where credit is due with each picture used in the book. I will also as part of the forward cite all the help I have received on the stories in regards to the editorial process put forth by anyone who has helped guide me to get this book out to try and making it the best it can be.
So please feel to contact me directly at my email address at email@example.com if you wish to help me with this endeavor and I would be forever in your debt…:)
I want this Book to be something I can be proud of from the ground up and with your help I know I can make it happen. I have read many of your guys blogs and know you have much talent.
I am working diligently on finishing up a few of my stories and will be looking for help with the editing and review process as each are finished.
In regards to the Artwork needed, I will be writing a brief synopsis of each story or a description soon to this blog of what may be actually wanted for an image. I do want to give the artist free reign at thinking of something appropriate to capture the eye and also the spirit of the story. ( if the artist wishes upon request I can send them the entire story to read to really get a feel for what the piece of art might be)
So again, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping me with my writing project… 🙂
