Everyone who comes to my blog, bowmanauthor/bowmaneditor, knows I write poetry from the abstract to the absurd. I share tips and tricks-of-the-trade for writing and publishing trends, and my passion: author of 10 books of fiction with a paranormal vein. My favorite genre is historical fiction based on fact, but my most popular two series works are the modern Denny Ryder Paranormal Crime Series and the Delilah Astral Investigators Infinity Series (time travel). I also do editorial reviews and critiques, third-party unbiased literary agent reviews, and of course, readers reviews. WRITERS ARE READERS!
Reading for me is my guilty pleasure, having taken a backseat to the heartfelt world of mentoring other authors and writers with the “Pick and Shovel Work” of writing, editing, rewriting, plot development, publishing, and the accuracy, clarity, and consistency of all genres of fiction, nonfiction, and business writing. I have done ghostwriting for decades, biographies and memoirs only, but I would rather guide you on how to write your own story. I teach as I edit on my own unique system at no extra charge. My authors win awards!
Editing and content development is the job that everyone hates to tackle in their own writing where the Elements of Style meet English Composition. It’s the not-so-creative necessities of making sure everything gels together in accuracy, voice, flow, and cohesiveness. Boring, yet imperative rules on parts of speech, punctuation, grammar, tenses, word definition, and syntax. YUCK! It’s all about knowing the rules tied into the grueling practice of diagramming sentences as well as organizing the chapters and integral parts of a document. DOUBLE YUCK! It really does help your writing if your sentences, paragraphs, chapters, and business publications really do make sense.
So, you never know what you will find when you stumble into my blog. I just hope you’ll contact me when you need a little assistance with a manuscript, personal resume, or researched report which requires a little polishing.
“Picks and shovels” unearth precious gems from the congealed ore of our planet. Let me help you take your diamond-in-the-rough and release its brilliance with all its multi-faceted glory.
Happy writing as well as creativity and editorially correct publications to everyone!
