What is going on here??
...and WHAT is all the fuss about??

Blog Trains, Contests, Hunts and a Launch but what in the heck is going on over at Authors’ Cave?

We all have an Authors' Cave of our own. That place where we create and our ideas come alive. Some of us may even have a few but either way we are certainly working very hard to get something very personal done! So why not take it a step further?

For those of you who are new or if you do not quite know for sure what Authors' Cave goes.

Authors' Cave is the place to take your personal work of art to the new heights I'm sure you are aware it deserves. So, in case you were curious of what all is going on around here, I've laid out a few examples of why visiting us in the Cave is a great idea!

Writing and Posting your book.

You have written your book and are feeling pretty good. You have edited the dang thing to death and you have read it to just about every family member you can get your hands on. You are ready and want to see that thing presented to the world! If all is set and you are feeling like you want it up and looking awesome, then right there is step one to taking advantage of the polishing services offered at Authors' Cave, and here are some examples as to why: 

Facing the music.
Beta, beta, beta!

How compelling is your blurb? Does the cover match the reader's experience or expectations? Get an outside view into your grammar and punctuation...are there errors? Get feedback on your characters, plot and story engagement. Take the plunge and get some feedback. This could be a great tool to help you see things that so many of us miss in our own writing! I definitely experienced this and was thankful to the readers that had found those unwanteds in my story that I was completely blind to when reading it myself. And just ask my writing partner, Ginger Gelsheimer, and she will tell you the same thing. Very glad we got our beta readers to help us out!

Challenge yourself.
Two words. The Grind.

Before you subject yourself to that first, harsh review, give your book a good run through The Grind. In return, you will get an error report that runs down the details into grammar and punctuation the human eye may miss. You will also get information on sentence structure, spelling, tenses on top of a personalized narrative by an Authors' Cave Committee Member. 

There is no doubt that you would benefit from the follow up that breaks down and interprets the report findings with the added benefit of one-to-one feedback of a readers suggestions. You can take the report and book feedback and are free to make the choice on any edits you may want to go with! Why not get that now before you hear it first on Amazon.
