We all know that authors get all the love and fame for the books they publish, but the reality is that they couldn’t possibly reach the heights they do without some considerable help from behind the scenes. Indeed, just writing the book itself is only a part of the battle as it needs to be proofread, refined and edited time and time again before it can become something suitable for the market.
Authors can have their day in the spotlight thanks to people like Mark Schultz, who prefer to stay behind the curtain and work from the sidelines. Mark is the President and main driving force at www.Wordrefiner.com , a company that has been in the proofreading and editing business for over forty years now. He’s done this for most of his life and is a legitimate expert in the field, and he graciously accepted to do the following email interview with us, discussing the work he does as well as his relation to literature in a more general sense.
One of the best parts of an author platform is making new connections that turn into friends. Such was the case with fellow word nerd, Mark Schultz, of Word Refiner. The Weight of Words, found in my Writing Toolbox, is all about the complexities of words. I believe this is what caught Mark’s eye and started the conversation between us. With that being said, it just made sense to feature Mark and Word Refiner on my blog. Without further ado, I’m pleased to introduce Mark Schultz and his homonym-sniffing sidekick, Grizz. hlgibsonauthor.com/2017/04/12/word-refiner-extraordinaire/

"I'm very pleased with all your efforts. Twitter promotion and proofreading were beyond what I expected with a book review. Your suggestions throughout the process of refining both books helped me immensely. I look forward to working with you again." A.E.H Veenman “Dial QR for Murder” and “Prepped for the Kill”
