100 sites for fiction writers: #82 -

This is an ongoing series looking at websites that can be of help to fiction writers with their craft and career.

As a fiction writer, have you ever had a question about writing that you needed answered, but you just didn't where to turn? Maybe it was a question about manuscript formatting? Or a question about the publishing business? Or maybe just a grammar or spelling question?

Sure you have. We all have.

What's different now from back in ye olden days, however, is that we have a place to go to find the answers to those questions.

No, I'm not talking about the Internet, silly. I'm talking about a website known as

Novelist, non-fiction author and editor Deborah Halverson runs this site. You can submit a question to her and she will answer it to the best of her knowledge, but keep in mind she is only one person, so of course she can't answer every single question that comes along. To help get an answer to your question, before asking it you should look through the Archives to make sure the question has not already been asked and answered.

If you need extensive help with a manuscript and can afford the fees, this site also offers Editorial Services, which can be important especially for independent authors who do not have easy access to an editor.

On a related note, Deborah Halverson is most experienced in writing fiction for the young adult market, so those with interests in that area should definitely check out Deborah's books and her site,
