About NadineMay

I'm a novelist but think in pictures. I Love innovative design, graphics, art & crafts. In 2002 after my first novel was published, I became an illustrator and book cover designer for Kima Global Publishers. I write regular articles on different topics at http://hubpages.com/@nadinemay My articles are often closely linked to the research I do for my forthcoming novel about Parallel Worlds, and I share them on several blogs. I love gardening and designing graphics for my articles and for my online product shops like zazzle,redbubble, society6,cafepress and more. The name ‘Just Kidding’ was a clothing label I owned during the eighties and today I’ve named several of my online stores "Just kidding".

Welcome 2015!

Happy New year

What does a publisher actually do?

These days many writers seem to think that they can easily self publish their manuscript. Many self publishing websites give a lot of promise. I would like to share informative articles from other writers, authors and publishers on this blog so visitors can learn from them.

No matter what your friends say, every manuscript needs editing. This is a job that you cannot do yourself, although if you engage a professional editor you will no doubt have some say on what they do for you.

Some of the tasks you should consider
