Work Refiner

May 5, 2020 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

As part of my journey in book publishing, I discovered an amazing service known as Word Refiner. I spent a week with the proprietor, Mark Schultz, responding to questions and doing an online interview with him.

Mark is a great resource for authors. His website,, has many links to blogs I’d never heard about, with unique ideas for writers like me. I learned so many things about writing, mostly by making mistakes about publishing and running into roadblocks. If only I’d known about Word Refiner! I would have saved time and money and made so many fewer mistakes.

Mark is also a master at finding misspellings and other errors in texts. He’s the best proofreader I’ve encountered in my many years of writing.

I’m in the process of writing a sequel to Empty Seats, and you can be sure that I will work with him when I’m getting the new novel (no title yet) ready for press.

In addition to all that, doing the interview with him was fun!
