My Review

One of the biggest apprehensions that many new writers entering into self-publishing have is editing. They have written the story they had in their mind (or heart, whatever the case may be), but what stops them from putting it out their for the world to read is the validation from an editor. They know they have to run it through a professional editor, but they are not sure whom to trust or even how to go about looking for one who would be a right fit for their style of writing.

Inderpreet Uppal has tried to address the very issue through her book, 'Self-editing, Editing and Editors'.  A lot of questions that new writers might face have been answered directly or indirectly. Being a published author herself as well as a professional editor, Inderpreet speaks with an authority on the subject that every new writer should/ must pay heed to.

I recommend this book to all those who have finished their manuscripts or are in the process of doing so.  Getting a professional editor to go through your manuscript is imperative. How to go about it, how to make sure it's a right fit, how to ensure the safety of your MS, and what to do before handing it to the editor...these and many more such questions will be answered once you read the book.

I give this book a full, five out of five stars.

'A Diary of Crime Stories' by Sonia Rao ~ Book Blitz

A DIARY OF CRIME STORIES: 
GUT-WRENCHING STORIES OF COLOURFUL
CHARACTERS AND SHOCKING TWISTS
by
Sonia Rao

• Did or didn’t a 5-year-old boy, who cannot hear or speak, witness a murder? And if he did, how dangerous can it become for him?

• CCTV cameras prove that a robbery was committed by a young analyst. But if she didn’t, then who did it?

• Love brings together hearts, true! But did you know it could destroy lives too?

What is a diary? It can be described as a personal book or even a safe space in which one can record one’s experiences, thoughts and ideas of both one’s outer and inner worlds. What is around us affects us. One aspect of outer world includes crime. This can take many forms: assault of all types, murder, and even fraud. Be it a differently-abled child or a woman undergoing domestic abuse, obsessive love that can lead to fraud and breakup of lifelong friendships or then honour killing - because you are not allowed to decide whom you can love and marry. Be it a modern world,…
