Aaron,
here's how I know my story is good enough to be published. I will read a chapter from a book of the same genre as mine, then switch and read a chapter from mine. I will do that for 2 or 3 times, and I know that mine is ready when it sounds as good as the genre chapters.

If it doesn't sound as good, then I will do another re write. In otherwords, voice is very important in your work. When the voice of your story is as good as the genre chapters, you know you are ready.

This does not mean copying one word from the book you are comparing to. Not one word. Just listening to the voice.

I noticed there were quite a few new people on the forum so I've bumped this thread up as it's both informative and interesting, not to mention the fact that it's a good way to introduce yourselves.

Hi,
I wrote and published A Light Warrior's Guide to High Level Energy Healing in 2000 and just now published it in kindle format.
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004GNFXMW

I am an international qigong and medical qigong teacher and currently working on a follow up book and two more DVD's.

http://www.qigongamerica.com has more info than most probably wish to know about what I do and who I am.

Michael

Hi Carl
Thanks for the opportunity to say hello. I live in Houston Texas. I strive to tell interesting fiction based on the quirks of life. I invite you and others to take a ride on The Blue Train to Heaven, Coming Home Tomorrow, or The Elephant to learn more about me. To know my writing is to know me.
