A Dose of Beauty from My Husband the Master Cabinetmaker

Stunning screen door restored and refinished by Master Cabinetworks, Inc.

Here's a stunning screen door with Asian-influenced design that My Husband the Master Cabinetmakertm restored and refinished for a client in the Hamptons. (The trim around the door and window will be refinished by house painters; the slate top step is covered with a temporary plywood box to protect it while carpenters, cabinetmakers, interior painters, electricians, and other craftspeople go in and out with heavy equipment.)

A Few Too Many Oopsies in the New APA Style Manual

APA style manual, 6th editionThe first printing of the new sixth edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, which I have yet to purchase, apparently has a good many errors, and those who peruse the APA web site won't easily find links to list of corrections. This article in the online magazine Inside Higher Ed contains links to pages on the APA site detailing the corrections, including corrections to four error-laden sample research papers.

You might also find the APA's blog APA Style helpful in figuring out what's changed and what's an error in the new edition of the style manual.

Where to Find Professional Editors

I'd love it if all authors who need an editor wanted to contract with me. But because I can't possibly edit every manuscript out there, I'm providing this nonexhaustive list of directories where you, dear authors, can search for professional editors. Your choice of which directories to search depends on the type of manuscript you've written: fiction, general nonfiction, academic, medical or scientific; book; white paper; journal research article; brochure copy; web-site copy.
