Geode Editorial Services

Already, a Gripe | May 20, 2007

I’ve spent a good bit of time this afternoon looking for links and sites related to copyediting. Although Will worked in magazines for two-plus years, and we’re not above throwing in some corporate-communications work to pay our bills, our expertise at Geode is mostly in books. Yet it seems as if every blog, discussion group, and professional society is geared toward newspaper copy editors, who are a very different breed (a strange one that eschews the serial comma). Does anyone out there know of a great online resource for book editors? Or will we have to become that source?

  4. Well, I can’t believe *someone* hasn’t already done this. But of course, we’ll be the best.

  7. You know that cool librarian, Nancy Pearl, from Seattle who wrote the “Book Lust” series has her own action figure doll. See here: http://www.mcphee.com/laf/

    Perhaps this website will launch you and Will to stardom and action figures of y’all will be created. Be careful though, who knows what people would do with little dolls when the novelty wears off: http://www.flickr.com/groups/nancypearl/pool/
