Due to popular demand, Sydney T. Cat put up a web page wherein he will give you useless and rude information on your manuscript. Really worth seeing! Steven York started this as a joke, and now it’s an industry!
Oh, and send tuna.
I had a chat with a fellow at my writing workshop this weekend who paid an “editor” to read his manuscript. I had to tell him he had wasted his money. I took no pleasure in delivering the news.
Then today I came across this dead-on commentary from Steven York on writer scams and other ways we fool ourselves in this industry. I wish every beginning writer could read this.
