General Guidelines and Questions

Stories should run about 500 words and focus on a specific idea, technique, process, strategy, tool, etc. that you used in revising a novel.

  1. What is your normal process of revision?
  2. What did you do differently in revising this novel? Please be very specific. Readers are looking for fast, easy tips that they can apply to their novel revision process, too. Short excerpts showing a before and after are fine, as long as it stays within the word limit.
  3. Please end with a one or two sentence of bio and promo for the novel. Include a link to your website, if you wish, and a link to your novel on Amazon or other online distributor.
