June, already?

Well, I made it through my first round of edits. I'm that much closer to it being ready to go!
BTW - Do you all know how to view all the bits of a piece of writing? Every tab, return, and space! Well, I didn't and now I do. And when I did, I saw little hidden bubbles (like degrees?) here and there throughout my MS. So weird! I have no idea where they came from! You might want to see what's hidden in your MS.

Now, In Blog News!
I wanted to tell you all about Rachel Morgan's new media adventure - she is hooking authors up! Book covers, book trailers and more. I am most impressed with the animated book covers! They catch attention - wow! Check it out and like it on facebook!

Find Morgan Media in the following places online:


DL Hammons' WRiTE CLUB 2013 kicks off tomorrow! You want to submit to it!

Wednesday is the first Wednesday of the month - and you know what that means! Insecure Writers Support Group! Hosted by our Insecurest leader, Alex! Wait, I meant Alex the Supporter Extraordinaire!

Hi Tara .. well done on all the edits - are those bubbly things - the things you used to get when you typed a document in an early pc doc .. can't remember what it's called - I expect they're from the publishers side of typing ...

i.e. I can't remember!! Good luck with achieving your goal .. cheers Hilary

That's weird about the bubbles. I've never heard of them before.

I'm off to check out the links, especially Rachel's.

Dana said...

Congrats on the edit!

Now I'm off to check some of those links. Have a great day!

Crystal Collier said...

Edits are the best. (Or at least, I think so.)

I love Morgan's stuff. She's innovative, and has an amazing eye.

And all these others... Choices, choices! There are so many wonderful things happening on the interwebs, how's a girl to choose?

Mark Means said...

Big time congrats on the edits and I hope the rest goes smoothly :)

Thanks for the IWSG reminder, as well...I need to get to work on that!

Have a great week.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Keep on rocking with the edits!
Thanks for reminding everyone about the IWSG.

Julie Luek said...

Good for you with all your edits-- cheering you on! And thank you for sharing the information too.

Heather M. Gardner said...

June?
You know what that means?
It's almost JULY!!!!

Glad to hear your first edits are done. Hope they were kind to you!

Good going on the edits.

I do know how to view all the bits of a piece of writing. Sometimes, I'm amazed by what's there. =)

Rachel Morgan said...

Oh, I know what the bubbles are! At least, I know what they are if they're the kind of bubbles I'm thinking of ... Non-breaking spaces. You get them by typing Ctrl-Shift-spacebar (on a PC. Don't know about Mac) at the same time. Useful here and there in both ebook and print formatting.

And thank you so much for sharing about Morgan Media!

Donna K. Weaver said...

Bubbles? That's interesting. lol

S.P. Bowers said...

Yikes, the fact that it's already June is a little daunting. And write club already? I haven't even started thinking about anything for it yet. Crazy.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I'm all set for Wednesday's post.

VikLit said...

EDITS! Good luck finishing them.

Carrie-Anne said...

Congratulations on finishing your edits!

Emily R. King said...

Yay for finishing your edits!

Nicole said...

I can't believe it's June either! 'Grats on finishing the edits.

Annalisa Crawford said...

I get those bubbles when I copy some articles from the internet and paste it into Word. I've never had them on documents that I've created from scratch in Word. I always view the spaces and returns - I get confused when I don't see them!

Suzi said...

Animated book covers. My first time seeing them. That is totally cool.

Angela Brown said...

Getting through edits is a great accomplishment. Huzzah for you!

I'm all set for IWSG this Wednesday.

I'm excited about the Thrill of it blog hop.

And now I'm just excited to get a chance to get around to some of my fave blogs after taking some time away.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Congrats on the editing and interesting about these bubbles. Congrats yet again to Morgan and I love her animated covers. But I also really love her headers as well. IWSG is going to be great and I'm a happy co-host this month. Best of luck with The Thrill of it all.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

So exciting Tara!! I love the stuff Morgan Media is doing. I really want one of those book marks, as soon as I get book three's cover, I am going to get one.

Romance Book Haven said...

Congratulations on finishing your edits!

Hi Tara,

Okay, your wait is over. Yay, I'm here and as humble as ever :)

Nice one for making through round one of your edits.

Nice to see that Rachel is hooking authors up. That's quite the visual.

Ah yes, IWSG, or "I Was Seeking Gary", apparently, according to my um millions of fans, an easy way to remember that group for writers and the like.

Um Blog Hops and Blogfests! Argggghhhh! LOL

Be well and have fun, Tara.

Gary :)

Yolanda Renee said...

Just finished my first round too, a real feeling of accomplishment, now on to book two. I've got a blog tour I'm trying to schedule, are you game?

Let me know.

IWSG Rocks!

Tyrean Martinson said...

I didn't know how to do that either until I got to formatting and copy editing my MS . . . it's good to know. I have a tendency to add spaces where they're not necessary - oops.

Nicki Elson said...

It's so cool Morgan's providing these services to writers!

As of yesterday, I realized that I'm up to my limit in eCommitments, so no more signing up for blogfests until I can get my eAct together.

Congrats on completing the first round of edits!

S.K. Anthony said...

Yay for getting those edits done :D

M. J. Joachim said...

Lots of good info here. Thanks for sharing...

M Pax said...

Wouldn't miss helping you launch your book. :)

I learned that show symbols or whatever it is when I started publishing. Now it's on all of the time.

Happy Wednesday!

Rhonda said...

I love those hidden codes, I have them turned on in Word all the time.

Tara Tyler said...
