Call for Fiction Excerpts Submissions!

April 2, 2013

After this July’s release of my non-fiction ‘Tell Me (How to Write) a Story, the next book I’m working on is going to be a collection of excerpts from novices, in first draft, which I’ll edit into first revision and last revision samples, coaching as we go through the excerpts.

I’m titling it ‘Revision for Beginners’ and I’m calling for submissions of first draft excerpts. I expect a publication date of mid 2014.

I’m looking for any 200 words from your Work In Progress.CallForSubmission

I am NOT looking for wonderfully polished excerpts.

The goal is to have your excerpt help others learn the art of revision.

I’ll be selecting 20 excerpts, and I’ll be editing them to a first pass stage, and then onto a further round of edits.

Each round is accompanied with coaching info and the how & why the edits are made.

Your work will be attributed to you by your name, pen name, or NaNoWroMo screen name as you choose.

Each contributor will receive 3 printed copies of the book. As well as one ARC (advanced reader’s copy) in mobi format, to be used if you are a blogger and wish to review the book, or know a blogger who you’d like to allow a review.

If you’re interested, please send your excerpt to you submission with a subject line of ‘Revision for Beginners

    Now here is a good chance for all us beginning writers out there. It is a chance to get 200 words of your work in process edited and coached though a number of other edits and credited into a book to be published on how to do revisions telling how the edits are made in each stage. This come from the author/editor from Bridge to Story listed in my list of links for writers.
