Writing series novels is harder than reading them.

This week I'm running a series of guest posts from experienced editors who are also accomplished authors. Today, I have bestselling UK author Harry Bingham who also runs The Writers' Workshop - a UK-based editorial service. Harry points out that if writers learn how to self-edit effectively, they can drastically cut down on their spending on professional help.

As some of you may know, indie author LC Evans lost her battle with cancer earlier this month. Simon Royle (of IndieView) is organizing a tribute today, part of which involves a big giveaway. In short: if you buy any book by LC Evans today, you get to choose another for free out of 40 different titles from a range of authors in all different genres (plus entered into the draw to win all 40 books). Deets here:

As part of this week's focus on self-editing, I have a guest post from IWU's very own Karin Cox - an author and editor with considerable experience. Karin is also my editor. I have first-hand experience of her impressive pleonasm-hunting skills as well as her uncanny ability to turn my sopa de letras into intelligible prose (no mean feat). Today's post focuses on common mistakes writers make, and how to avoid them.

Today, I wrap up Self-Editing week with the second part of a post from author and editor (and IWUer) Karin Cox on the most common mistakes she sees from writers including shoddy dialogue, talking heads, clumsy exposition, and word mix-up flubs. This is good stuff, peeps!
