The first rule in self-publishing is to have the manuscript scrubbed by a good editor. I was very fortunate to choose Robin Smith as my editor. Her superb edits were helped make my writing career possible. Robin’s edits are insightful and educational and guided me in improving my writing skills as well as my manuscripts.
My first novel, which Robin edited, was a Spur Award finalist and was a finalist for the New Mexico Arizona Book Awards. Her edits helped make my work good enough to be picked up by a small press and led to my future work being accepted by a major publisher. When you can choose your editor, choose well. I highly recommend Robin Smith.
