@brooks_jones: Has anyone hired an outside editor to help with a current or future app or ebook release? #storyappchat

@brooks_jones: @DeclicKids Welcome to #storyappchat!
March 26, 2012, 1:07 am

@ruBORED: @brooks_jones #storyappchat. Hi everyone. Very interested in tonight's topic.
March 26, 2012, 1:08 am

@lynleystace: @brooks_jones I'm interested to hear about your experience being edited, Brooks. #storyappchat

@brooks_jones: @lynleystace Yep, I did hire an editor to help with a craft how-to book I'm working on. Great experience! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:09 am

@cynthianugent: i'm giving Ted-style talk on Picturebook Theory for app developers @ appcamp. some storybk app developers don't get pbs #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:09 am

@brooks_jones: My editor caught things that hadn't occurred to me (consistency, tone). And he had very reasonable rates too #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:09 am

@DeclicKids: #storyappchat I write reviews and have a manifesto with "pilars" of digital quality for kids http://t.co/OPP7btPR
March 26, 2012, 1:09 am

@lynleystace: @brooks_jones How did you find/decide on your editor? #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:11 am

@Annie_Fox: Brooks, I hired an editor for my current book, Teaching Kids to Be Good People. Someone I've worked w/before. Essential! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:11 am

@brooks_jones: Didn't want to do it at 1st (takes up time and $$). I'll never say that again. My editor was fast, reasonable price, and good! #storyappchat

March 26, 2012, 1:11 am

@brooks_jones: @Annie_Fox Welcome to #storyappchat! Thanks for chiming in, Annie!
March 26, 2012, 1:12 am

@brooks_jones: @lynleystace Found my editor through word of mouth (a friend's recommendation) #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:12 am

@Annie_Fox: @brooks_jones I agree! Totally worth the $! Writing is a solitary enough enterprise. I need someone to be accountable to... #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:13 am

@cynthianugent: like The Cosmos made by Bitaluna with Kwiksher, great art & ideas but needs an editor for overlong text http://t.co/eJQ7CMSI #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:13 am

@Annie_Fox: ... I also love being able to talk w/my editor about organizational strategies and priorities for what's to be includedn #storyappchat

@cynthianugent: correction "the Comet
March 26, 2012, 1:14 am

@brooks_jones: @Annie_Fox Nice! Sounds like you have a very good editor-writer relationship. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:14 am

@lynleystace: When seeking editing for a picturebook, does the editor need to be a picturebook specialist, do you think? #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:14 am

@Annie_Fox: I'd say that a writer/editor relationship is very special & if it doesn't work it's AWFUL! So, audition your candidatesn #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:14 am

@SmartyAppAttack: Hello! Sorry I am late! I hired Laura from CBI to edit my storybook app, and I was very impressed. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:14 am

@cynthianugent: @brooks_jones Was your editor a kidsbooks specialist? #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:14 am

@DavidBFox: @Annie_Fox Do you feel it's more important for longer books than kids picture books? #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:15 am

@lynleystace: Since story works in tandem with pictures, does the editor comment on the pictures as well? #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:15 am

@brooks_jones: Great! RT @ruBORED: I have hired someone to review my chapter book but its a trad. author that also does critiques #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:15 am

@Annie_Fox: @lynleystace Yes, I would say so. A good editor (the only kind worth having) needs to have a real feel for UR kind of writing #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:15 am

@brooks_jones: @cynthianugent Nope, not even a non-fiction specialist (my upcoming book is a craft how-to) #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:15 am

@Annie_Fox: And for the intended audience. An adult non-fiction editor, for example, wouldn't make a good picture book editor. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:15 am

@lynleystace: @Annie_Fox I have not the foggiest idea how to go about finding such a person! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:16 am

@brooks_jones: Mine was a good all-around copyeditor, but eventually I'd love to be part of a craft book critique group #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:16 am

@iPad_storytime: I find typos, etc. in PBs difficult to excuse given how few words to begin with ... what's your tolerance level as a reader? #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:17 am

@Annie_Fox: @DavidBFox Editors help writers (of all kinds) see their work w/objective eyes. So yes, important for kids' books too! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:17 am

@brooks_jones: @iPad_storytime My tolerance for typos is very, very low! Hate 'em. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:18 am

@lynleystace: I've had work edited before, and I think 'being edited' is a skill in its own right. i.e. knowing what to listen to. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:18 am

@DavidBFox: @iPad_storytime I almost always find typos, even in books published by the Big 6 publishers. But they're usually rare. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:18 am

@iPad_storytime: @cynthianugent Just looking at The Comet right now ... have note to self about the text length. See this issue often in apps. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:18 am

@Annie_Fox: Any writer who thinks "I don't need an editor" is short-changing herself (and her readers) Gr8 editors make books better #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:18 am

@brooks_jones: @lynleystace Yes, absolutely. Take the advice with a grain of salt and ignore it if you need to. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:18 am

@ruBORED: @brooks_jones #storyappchat do you think it is important to have someone familiar with digital format to critique?
March 26, 2012, 1:18 am

@Annie_Fox: @lynleystace I agree! And I've worked w/poor editors who wanted to take too much ownership of my work. We def. had conflicts! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:19 am

@brooks_jones: @DavidBFox Seeing more and more typos from big book and magazine publishers lately. Stinks! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:19 am

@DavidBFox: @Annie_Fox There may be a natural fear of an editor, esp when you think your book is all done and perfect. Don't want bad news #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:19 am

@lynleystace: I didn't get The Artifacts edited, and had even pulled right away from critique groups. Make of that what you will. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:19 am

@brooks_jones: @ruBORED Not necessarily. The content is what's most important (words/pictures) #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:20 am

@Annie_Fox: @lynleystace You can start your search on Twitter. #editors and see what you get. Remember to audition! It's gotta be a match #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:20 am

@iPad_storytime: @ruBORED @brooks_jones - I would recommend both, someone familiar w/ the print genre you write for & digital if possible. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:20 am

@brooks_jones: @lynleystace I used to be a part of an online critique group (for kid's books) but got better advice from a few close friends #storyappchat

@MissMelodyKitty: “@brooks_jones: Just about to get started with tonite's #storyappchat: anybody else out there?” here late
March 26, 2012, 1:21 am

@Annie_Fox: @brooks_jones @reBORED, I agree totally, Brooks. It's the content not the format that counts. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:21 am

@cynthianugent: How are people finding editors? In Canada you can contact EAC. http://t.co/iyfLeekG now I'm editing self-publish kid authors. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:21 am

@lynleystace: @Annie_Fox What exactly do you mean by 'audition'? How do you audition an editor? #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:21 am

@brooks_jones: @MissMelodyKitty Great to see you here for tonite's #storyappchat!
March 26, 2012, 1:21 am

@iPad_storytime: @brooks_jones I know ... I wonder about reader tolerance for blog typos? Can't afford an editor for that kind of volume. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:21 am

@MissMelodyKitty: RT @brooks_jones: @iPad_storytime My tolerance for typos is very, very low! Hate 'em. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:21 am

@lynleystace: @brooks_jones I decided after a few years of critique that I was getting too many diverse opinions for my own mental health! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:22 am

@Annie_Fox: @lynleystace Have phone convo about the kind of work the candidate's most drawn to. Ck out what s/he's edited. Get references. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:23 am

@DavidBFox: @iPad_storytime I get to edit @Annie_Fox's blog and she edits my docs. Nice having one in-house! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:23 am

@lynleystace: @Annie_Fox Righto. Surely you can't really REALLY tell until AFTER they've edited your stuff, though! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:24 am

@Annie_Fox: Ultimately, you can't produce a gr8 book (of any genre) by "committee". It's YOUR book... you're the keeper of the vision #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:24 am

@BeBraveBook: #storyappchat @Annie_Fox Agree with comments made - editors make betr books, but publishers and book designers still make mistakes.
March 26, 2012, 1:24 am

@lynleystace: @DavidBFox Indeed - My husband @superhareball proved to be an excellent first reader. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:24 am

@iPad_storytime: @DavidBFox That is a sweet deal! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:24 am

@DavidBFox: There's also a pretty broad spectrum of what an editor can do... from just copy editing to helping with org, consistency, tone #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:24 am

@lynleystace: @Annie_Fox Yes, exactly. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:24 am

@brooks_jones: @BeBraveBook Welcome to #storyappchat! Glad you could make it.

@DavidBFox: @lynleystace Nice! I guessed that... #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:25 am

@Annie_Fox: @lynleystace I disagree. U can by talking w/writers who've worked w/them. Then give him/her a sample chapter of yours to edit. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:25 am

@BeBraveBook: #storyappchat @Annie_Fox Had many disagreements and went through 2 editors and 2 illustrators - agree with Annie - stick to your vision!
March 26, 2012, 1:26 am

@lynleystace: @Annie_Fox I guess I'm thinking specifically about pbs today. Not chapters, just the length of a poem. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:26 am

@Annie_Fox: @DavidBFox Agreed! I love the opp. to talk w/my editor during early stages of formulating my ideas for a new books #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:26 am

@brooks_jones: @DavidBFox Yep--I knew my editor had no experience with my type of book, so I didn't ask for anything beyond copy/line editing #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:27 am

@Annie_Fox: @lynleystace Are you looking for someone to edit a poem? If so, that seems like very specific (and very personal) editing! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:27 am

@DavidBFox: @Annie_Fox important to be clear what level editing you want, too. Would be disastrous if you had different ideas/goals. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:28 am

@DeclicKids: @iPad_storytime I think blog don't fall under the same category. Typo is not a big deal. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:28 am

@ruBORED: @brooks_jones #storyappchat how do find someone that will review illustrations also?
March 26, 2012, 1:28 am

@DeclicKids: @iPad_storytime In kids app, a typo is seen many many times and hurst parent eyr #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:28 am

@lynleystace: @Annie_Fox Not a poem, something the length of a poem: our next storyapp. Just looking into it. May not do it. #storyappchat

March 26, 2012, 1:28 am

@Annie_Fox: @BeBraveBook You're right. Yes, the pros sometimes make mistakes. That's why you want to make sure you stay in the loop. #storyappchat

@iPad_storytime: What do people think about translation issues in story apps? Goes beyond copy editing, but same need for outside help ... #storyappchat

@DeclicKids: #storyappchat Do you think a "marketplace" to help dev, authors and illustrators to find editor help at good price would be interesting?

@DeclicKids: #storyappchat translation issues is one of my top1 issues with publishers.
March 26, 2012, 1:32 am

@Annie_Fox: @iPad_storytime Translations req. a very specific skill set, and I'm not just talking word-for-word. Ask Isabel Allende! LOL #storyappchat

@brooks_jones: @DeclicKids I don't blame you--would hate to see my native language butchered! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:32 am

@lynleystace: You have to be a writer as well as a translator. True. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:33 am

@Annie_Fox: @DeclicKids You need a native speaker who is fluent in your language. Otherwise, it's so hard to get nuance and humor. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:34 am

@MissMelodyKitty: “@Annie_Fox: Who has experience with Print on Demand Children's books? #storyappchat”. I used Lightning Source for my MMKDA book

@Annie_Fox: @cullencox And who was the printer for that title? #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:34 am

@DeclicKids: #storyappchat I think you don't only need a native speaker. I've seen this in many examples. You really need specific skills to get it right

@MissMelodyKitty: Yes, you can order just 1 but costs much more “@Annie_Fox: @MissMelodyKitty So does Lightning Source require a min. order? #storyappchat”

@brooks_jones: @lynleystace I paid for a critique of I Don't Like Pink! at a writer's conference and ignored a lot of the advice I got. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:51 am

@lynleystace: I highly recommend Self Editing For Fiction Writers. http://t.co/nODzdnDt #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:51 am

@Annie_Fox: @lynleystace Not to say, you can't 'know' if it's ready. I'm saying, I've read many ms that were not prof. quality kids' bks #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:51 am

@lynleystace: I guess my experience with being edited hasn't been that good. I'm sure that's part of it. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:51 am

@brooks_jones: @lynleystace ...but, I'd already incorporated lots of good suggestions from others before getting the prof. critique #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:51 am

@prplcarrotbooks: #storyappchat Hi all. Very late to the discussion. Good topic. Editing very important. Take care that edit doesn't change voice.
March 26, 2012, 1:51 am

@ruBORED: @lynleystace #storyappchat thx go that info
March 26, 2012, 1:52 am

@brooks_jones: @prplcarrotbooks Welcome! Glad you could make it to tonite's #storyappchat!
March 26, 2012, 1:52 am

@lynleystace: If funds were no issue I'd contract a graphic designer, prof. illustrator, narrators, animators, colorists, marketer, editor. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:52 am

@Annie_Fox: @lynleystace I hear you! You have to strike a balance between believing in your work and being open to professional critique #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:53 am

@DeclicKids: #storyappchat a good editor is someone who helps you find your inner tone, your voice, without changing it !
March 26, 2012, 1:53 am

@brooks_jones: I think any story can be improved by good editing. You don't have to follow ALL the advice you get, tho! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:53 am

@cynthianugent: @brooks_jones @lynleystace editing isn't just about correcting errors-develp humour, narrative, avoid cliches, stereotype... #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:53 am

@lynleystace: @Annie_Fox Right. I NEED to tell myself, there are no rules! Bc it was one bucket of hubris for me to start on this gig. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:54 am

@Annie_Fox: @prplcarrotbooks Agreed! Remember this is YOUR book and it's YOUR voice. Gr8 editors are surgical in their precision & egoless #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:54 am

@lynleystace: @cynthianugent Indeed. Editing is much more than copy-editing. Excellent point. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:54 am

@DeclicKids: @Annie_Fox #storyappchat yes, and editor has to respect your voice and be egoless. You're the boss.
March 26, 2012, 1:55 am

@lynleystace: @brooks_jones You don't have to follow a single word of advice you get! #storyappchat

March 26, 2012, 1:55 am

@brooks_jones: @lynleystace Your voice is right on--after all, your app has won awards! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:55 am

@iPad_storytime: @brooks_jones In my other life I critique teachers learning new curriculum, always say, "take what's useful, throw rest out" #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:56 am

@Annie_Fox: @brooks_jones Thank you for that, Brooks. It took me a long time to develop my unfettered writing voice. Gotta protect it! #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:57 am

@MissMelodyKitty: @iPad_storytime #storyappchat Or eat the good part and spit out the bones lol
March 26, 2012, 1:58 am

@prplcarrotbooks: @lynleystace Perhaps the editor changed your voice with too much editing. One thing to correct another to change too much.#storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:58 am

@Annie_Fox: @lynleystace There aren't any "rules" but there are artistic & literary standards, that is, if you want to sell your work. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:58 am

@lynleystace: @prplcarrotbooks No, they just didn't know what they were doing. #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:58 am

@Annie_Fox: When you know your writing voice inside & out, an editor changing one word can SCREAM out to me "I didn't write that!" LOL #storyappchat
March 26, 2012, 1:59 am

@prplcarrotbooks: @cynthianugent @brooks_jones @lynleystace That's why a good critique group is so valuable. #storyappchat

March 26, 2012, 2:00 am

@Annie_Fox: There are different ways to use an editor & if you're paying for his/her services, you tell them what you want and don't want. #storyappchat

March 26, 2012, 2:02 am

@iPad_storytime: I'm always surprised to be the first person to tell someone their book isn't good ... shouldn't wait for reviewer to be first. #storyappchat
