Welcome to TheEssentialWriter! My name is Don Sloan and I hope to make your time here enjoyable and instructive.
I am a writer with two published novels and a novella, along with two works of nonfiction. So, if you, too, are a writer, I can totally relate.
I’ve also spent a great deal of time reviewing books — more than 200 over the past year and a half. You’ll find many of those reviews elsewhere on this site.
If you’re looking for an impartial review, I’ll be glad to thoroughly read and critique your work for a small fee. It’s not expensive, and a quality, professional evaluation can be invaluable in promoting your book.
Reviews typically are between 350 and 500 words and include a comprehensive proofreading for such things as typos, illogical sentence structure and formatting issues. For punctuation and a more in-depth review of your manuscript, I offer editing services, priced separately.
I hope you take a stroll around TheEssentialWriter. It’s loaded with lots of helpful tips, examples, writing prompts, and personal meanderings on the trials and tribulations of The Writer’s Life (well, this writer, anyway.) 🙂
Thanks for stopping by. Please bookmark this site and visit often. Or subscribe to receive regular updates.
All the best, and keep writing!
