THE FRUGAL BOOK EDITOR by Carolyn Howard-Johnson~ Red Engine Press~ Non-Fiction/Self-Help for Writers

The Frugal Editor

This book serves as a desk reference for any writer who composes any type of writing. Written in a conversational style, THE FRUGAL BOOK EDITOR offers instruction on one topic at a time thereby making the whole process of editing much more manageable. Encouragement for those of us who are easily frustrated with the ‘cleaning up’ stages of our manuscripts highlights the instruction.

One may approach the book in several ways. Read THE FRUGAL BOOK EDITOR from beginning to end to get a good idea of what Ms. Howard-Johnson is offering as well as a good understanding of her conversational style. Once an overall read is completed, a writer may use the contents or index to zero in on the part he/she needs at any given time.

I’m a writer who would love to have someone else take over the editing and proofreading stages of my manuscripts because I hate editing, proofreading, and rewriting. Ms. Howard-Johnson’s techniques and her encouragement from page to page of THE FRUGAL BOOK EDITOR lifts my spirits to the level where I can approach these hated tasks in a better attitude and get the job done. I advise all writers to obtain a copy of THE FRUGAL BOOK EDITOR and keep it handy as your write.
Carolyn Howard-Johnson has studied writing at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom, UK: Herzen University in St. Petersburg, RU, and Charles University in Prague. Ms. Howard-Johnson is a lecturer, an instructor, and a writer. She has appeared on TV and hundreds of radio stations nationwide. She received the award Woman of the Year in Arts and Entertainment by members of the California Legislature. She has also published a nitty-gritty how-to book, THE FRUGAL BOOK PROMOTER that won USA Book News’ “Best Professional Book 2004” and a chapbook of poetry, TRACINGS (Finishing Line Press). She loves to travel. Find more information about her at www.authorsden.com/carolynhowardjohnson.
