The Flubs2Fixes Website is Back!

Whew. That didn’t take as long as I expected, once I knew what needed to be done. Please note that I have updated my services to include copy editing and proofreading of most nonfiction, as well as fiction. (Sorry, but I’m not equipped to handle manuscripts which feature technical, mathematical, scientific or medical terminology, equations or charts. For such manuscripts, it is best to work with someone who is knowledgeable in the specific subject.) Please see the Services page for full details. I will post on Monday about a book I’ve recently read that should be of help to those who write fiction. Stay tuned! For now, I will say… Read More

Check Out This Resource!

I am all too aware that this blog has been sadly neglected for far too long. My apologies! Flubs2Fixes is definitely open for business, and this blog is about to be resuscitated, at least for a little while, before the summer break. I’ll have an official “I’m BACK!” post next week. I have several great books and other resources that I’m eager to share with you. What I plan to do through May and possibly June is to post about them on Mondays. If you know of any books or resources that you think I should feature, let me know in the comments (on this or any future post) and… Read More

As I embark on a fresh editing season, I’ll remind you of something I said in my last blog post — this year I will be focusing on copy editing and proofreading only, to give you my best and to keep a balance in my own life. Just for clarification, since I’ve had a couple of inquiries, I don’t do ghost writing. For developmental/substantive/content editing (whichever term you prefer), I would refer you to the… Read More

Editing Break

I will be taking an editing break during August and September. When I return, in order to continue to give my best to my clients and to keep a good balance in my own life, my focus will be copy editing and proofreading, at least for the time being. I don’t want to leave you high and dry, however. If you are looking for a freelance editor, there are excellent editors and critiquers in the listing on the KidLit411 website. The site as a whole has a plethora of resources for writers and illustrators of children’s books. Jordan E. Rosenfeld, who has written and co-written several books about the writing… Read More

Some Writing Resources and a Blog Hiatus

Summer is coming! That means it’s time to take a blogging break (actually, since it’s quite a while since I posted, it may seem that I’ve already been taking one. I hope this post will make up for that, a bit at least.) Before the blog goes off on its vacation, I’d like to share some resources with you. Some you may already be familiar with, others may be new to you. This is just a sampling of the plethora of resources out there. I hope you’ll find something helpful in the ones I’ve shared in the links below. Websites: KidLit411 has been named Writer’s Digest’s top kidlit blog for… Read More
