Win a Professional Edit from Bookbaby

I rarely post contests here, but this is something special. As an editor, I know that a great edit of a book can easily cost more than a thousand dollars, so this contest for an edit is something special. And thirty-one authors may win! It's all part of the celebration looking forward to helping authors publish professionally with their #IndieAuthorsCon conference in Philadelphia, Nov. 3-5.  And it's typical of the way Bookbaby does things--always generous!

 I'll be at the Philly event to meet winners (I hope winners will come!) and many others who have told me they are eager to sit in on my presentation!

Oh, one more thing before you get needed info to enter the contest! You get a discount on the already low price for the conference when you use "Carolyn" as a code when you register.  Now, here's Bookbaby's  on how to win the first step toward publishing (after  your book is finished!):

BookBaby is giving away free book editing 
all month to independent authors

The leading self-publishing company is giving away 31 editing projects in August.

Pennsauken, NJ, August 2, 2017—BookBaby believes that every book needs a professional edit. And they’re prepared to back up that statement with a massive editing giveaway all through the month of August. Self-publishing authors will have 31 chances—one chance per day—to win professional editing for their book.

“Giving away that many editing packages might sound crazy,” says BookBaby President Steven Spatz. “But
publishing your book without having it editing? That’s really crazy.”

Every winner will receive a thorough copy or line editing from BookBaby’s professional editing team, comprised of seasoned editors that have worked with titles across every genre, many on the New York Times bestsellers list.

BookBaby’s editing sweepstakes is a great opportunity for self-publishing authors to receive a publishing essential from some of the best editors available. Authors can enter the sweepstakes here: https://www.bookbaby.com/free-guide/book-editing-sweepstakes
