Tip Tuesday #137

Tip Tuesday features writers' tips on craft, research, querying, blogging, marketing, inspiration, and more. If you'd like to send in a tip, please e-mail me at agentspotlight(at)gmail(dot)com.

Today I have a tip from Deborah Blumenthal who you're likely to remember from my March interview featuring her latest YA novel, THE LIFEGUARD. Please check out the interview if you missed it, and visit Deborah at her website to learn more about her and her books. We've had a tip similar to this in the past, so it's clearly a good one!
I recently completed a new young adult novel and I sent it to my Kindle so that I could give it a last read while I was out of the house. I was amazed at the number of errors I picked up on the Kindle that I somehow missed when I was reading it on my lap top.

Great modern way to proof, changing the format, like printing it or reading out loud.

Someday I'll get a Kindle... But I can see how this would be helpful. I still need to print my manuscripts to give them a good read, but the paper waste kills me.

Changing format really does help when looking for errors.

I agree with Nicole. I've never edited on my kindle but changing the format can definitely be helpful! :D
