IN THE PRESS

Serious Reading

Interview with author Roger Bradbury

Serious Reading: Let’s start with something broad. What do you think is the most important part of a
book?

Rog: For creative writers, the most important part is the story. What we call literature began with someone
telling a tale around a fire. Something happened, and someone rose up to tell the others what and why.
The teller had to recount the incident from beginning to end. Otherwise, he might not get his portion of the
animal someone else had killed, or she might have to forfeit her life like Scheherazade. Her artful story
telling is probably the first recorded instance of “Tune in tomorrow night for the exciting conclusion of
1000 and One Nights! Will Shahryar kill Scheherazade as dawn breaks?”

Serious Reading: Fortunately, he did not, otherwise no Ali Baba.
Rog: Aladdin either.
Serious Reading: Does it take a penalty like the one she faced to inspire you to write?
Rog: Not quite, but I have to be intrigued by some event; something has to pique my interest or curiosity. I
find myself wondering about the why, the who, the what, and I start to jot notes. Back in the day I threw
them into a box; now I save them on a computer. Sinclair Lewis said that the secret of writing is to apply
the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair. It helps to have a box of notes, seeds if you will, even though
I discard most of them as I work a story out…

CREATIVE WRITING SERVICE

 

ONE AND DONE: 

 I review and edit a two thousand word or less piece.

Projects are typically flash or micro fiction and/or a ten minute play. 

CRITIIQUE

I review creative work of ten thousand words or less and reply with a one-page critique covering:

                    Mechanics and Format

                    Style

                    Characterization

                    Story Flow  

CONTENT REVIEW

I review stories up to ten thousand words, one act plays, or the first ten thousand words of a novel. I suggest revisions using Track Changes or Google docs. The object of the review is to guide you toward the finished piece.

BOOK MATTER

I format prepublication front, back, and book matter using a simple, but professional font. I also prepare headers, footers, and page numbers. I will size the manuscript and set up the verso and recto pages according to current standards.

 

TO SUBMIT

Send an e mail to bywordsalone.com. Attach a draft of the project. I will do a cursory review to determine whether the piece it is ready to be taken forward. If it is, I will use either a Track Changes or Google Docs format to edit the text. You may accept or reject the changes as you see fit.

THE PROCESS

If so, I will invoice you for the first payment. Once you have completed the payment I will review and edit the piece. You decide if you wish a second or final edit. If you do, I will invoice you before I complete the work.

Please understand that I do not ghost write or proof read. If the work is not ready for a content review or prepublication formatting, I will suggest a critique. If you agree, I will invoice you accordingly.

Once I have completed work on what you send me, you will receive specific suggestions that will enable you to complete the project.

Here is the first one:

Proofread until your eyes bleed.

 What you miss will the first thing an agent, editor, or reader sees.
