Guest Author: Harmony Kent

It is my pleasure to host Harmony Kent on day 5 of her two week blog tour with 4WillsPublishing. Harmony is an extremely inspiring woman to me and many others. Her endless support of Indie Authors is prevalent in her latest book, Polish Your Prose, which I am halfway through reading, and have found the information it contains truly invaluable. Please welcome my friend, Harmony Kent!

Hi there! Thanks for joining me on my awesome fourteen-day blog tour with 4Wills Publishing and my fantastic host for today, Traci! You can find details of my other stops here: 4Wills Author Page.

I published my first book, THE BATTLE FOR BRISINGAMEN, in May 2013. I soon followed this up with the award winning mystery/thriller THE GLADE in November 2013, and my first Young Adult fiction book, ELEMENTAL EARTH, in July 2014.

Today, am promoting my latest work, POLISH YOUR PROSE. This is my first non-fiction book, and is a powerful new guide that gives essential editing tips for authors.

Polish Your Prose by Harmony Kent

Lots of books have been written on the art of writing, and here—at last—is a guide that will teach you the essential techniques of editing your own book. This will help you turn a promising manuscript into a published novel. And, it does this without the jargon. You don’t need to know all the grammatical terms in order to make use of this book. You don’t need to know the definition of a split infinitive, a comma splice, or a ‘to be’ verb, as this manual explains these in detail in easy to understand terms, and a lively and engaging style.

Chapters on Passive Writing, Tense, Point of View, Dialogue, and other techniques take you through the same processes an editor would go through to polish and perfect your manuscript. Good writing is nothing without good editing. Learn the secrets of good editing and writing with this essential author reference, which offers so much more for so much less.

As well as being an award-winning author, I am an accomplished editor and proofreader. My passion is helping Indie Authors to successfully achieve their goals and dreams.

Excerpt from the foreword, written by Rave Reviews Book Club’s very own Nonnie Jules!

POLISH YOUR PROSE has a chapter on just about every writing issue imaginable! Confused about 1st, 2nd and 3rd person? It’s in there! Past & Present tense got you stumped? It’s in there! Singles and Plurals throwing you for a loop? There’s a chapter on those, too! Harmony covers it all.
There’s never a replacement for having your written work professionally edited, but you can always make the job easier on your editor and maybe even a bit less costly for your pocketbook if you begin the job yourself. Following the rules outlined in POLISH YOUR PROSE is just what you need to get on the right road to producing your best work ever!
I highly recommend this book to writers who are just entering the field, as well as those veterans who might just need a brush-up. Rules do change, you know. There’s no need to be in the dark anymore about what’s right and what’s wrong with your writing. Harmony has summed it all up for you in a pretty little package she calls, POLISH YOUR PROSE!

  1. Thanks so much for this awesome post, Traci! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.
    I so wanted to share my knowledge with as many authors as possible, and to help as many as possible, and this book seemed the best way to do it. I am delighted you are finding it so useful! 🙂 x

  2. My pleasure, Harmz! I am truly benefiting from your book Polish Your Prose. Thankfully, I didn’t commit ALL of the crimes listed in there, but I’m not spotless either:)

    1. Thanks, John! It is already getting good responses, which makes me very glad I wrote this book. It was one that took me way outside of my comfort zone … fiction is my thing! LOL
      Thanks for stopping by!

      And, thanks again, Traci, for hosting me! 🙂

      1. It was my pleasure to host you, Harmz! I wish my blog would have garnered more attention for you but it is still pretty new:(

        The GOOD thing about writing out of your comfort zone is that you get to try something new and challenge yourself. The BAD thing is that you have to do and learn something you never have before:)

        Funny, non-fiction is my niche and fiction is harder for me to write, probably the teacher in me coming out:) But I do enjoy writing about pretty much anything, so I will continue to do my research and get better with each piece I write.

        Thanks for joining my blog today!
