I couldn’t have a pay-it-forward series without mentioning the Logsdon family. Lorelei Logsdon is an amazing editor, who has edited all of my books. Her husband, John, is a best-selling author who has helped me immensely with my marketing. And their son, Jake, is an awesome cover designer.

The Author Helper

John P. Logsdon and best-selling author Ben Zackheim have now started TheAuthorHelper.com, a resource portal for independent authors that offers weekly podcasts on topical issues, step-by-step instructions on how to build a winning author website, advice for marketing and social media, links to helpful books, as well as an informative newsletter. So, if you’re keen on learning how to sell more books, do check them out!

They recently shared this video where the three of them discuss the editing process. If you enjoy listening to debates on single vs. double space as much as I do, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!
