Self-Publishing Success Stories: Jonas Saul


Helpful advice to new writers:
Excerpt from The Farthest Reaches's Behind The Words // Jonas Saul
[. . . . .]
4. I receive my battle weary manuscript back and make the corrections she has suggested.
5. After all that I do a character edit which means I read only one characters POV scenes from the beginning of the novel until the end so I can monitor their progress and growth. I need to make my characters just right so the story rings true.
6. Lastly, I read the entire manuscript backwards, page by page, out loud. This is so I don’t get lost in the continuity of the story. This keeps me out of the story and into the words. Just seeing the sentences and paragraphs for what they are and hearing them out loud really makes a difference. A huge difference.
Very useful tip in my opinion.  Follow the link to read the whole post

As of March 2012 I have sold over 50,000 ebooks since the beginning of last year. I have 12 titles for sale right now at Amazon with four more going up for sale within the next eight weeks.
