Becoming a successful published author requires an extensive education, but colleges only teach the craft of literary writing, completely ignoring the needs of commercial publishers and how to be published. College professors and publishers don't always see eye-to-eye. A one-on-one book edit by an experienced professional is the most intensive educational experience available to help you learn how to be published, but be careful. Disreputable/incompetent book editors abound! Learn what to look for in a manuscript editor here.

Michael Garrett's PREDITORS & EDITORS listing: (Writing2Sell at bottom of page)

My name is Michael Garrett and I'm an internationally respected editor. As credited in Mr. King's non-fiction book On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, I served as Stephen King's first editor. In a professional capacity I've also edited the works of such greats as Joyce Carol Oates, Harlan Ellison, Lawrence Block and many others for major publishers like Pocket Books and Kensington Publishing.

I'm also an internationally published author and have been extensively published since 1979, in periodicals ranging from Twilight Zone magazine to my novel, Keeper, which sold out its initial printing and was optioned for a movie. My short story, "At the Count of Three," was also optioned as the pilot episode of a late night cable television series. My works have been published in England, Germany, Japan, Italy, the Netherlands, France, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Spain, Finland and Russia, as well as in audio book format.

I serve as co-editor of the internationally award-winning Hot Blood anthology series, a popular selection of the Doubleday, Mystery, Literary Guild, and Science Fiction Book Clubs. The series has also been optioned for television.

I served as an Editorial Associate of the Writer's Digest School for over fifteen years, and since 1986 have presented highly acclaimed writing workshops at major colleges and universities across the nation. A featured speaker at numerous writers' conferences, I currently serve on the Advisory Board of Kentucky's Green River Writers.
