Editing client publishes dystopian novel
What is an ‘imprint’ in self-publishing?

Don’t laugh at making this error: Hardy vs. hearty

A few 240_F_109864677_3Uipujk9eScE7yJJuRDdKskIgaeGEfs7bold writers have decided that knowing the difference between hardy vs. hearty doesn’t matter. Such authors are foolhardy, indeed.

Hardy means to be “strong” or “bold.”A hardy person can handle tough conditions. For example: They must be truly hardy folk to survive a Minnesota winter.

means to “express warmly.” For example: Santa Claus gave a hearty laugh.

A quick tip for remembering the difference: A pirate who survives a sea storm is hardy, but when he later boasts about it, his laugh is hearty.

Need an editor? Having your book, business document or academic paper proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you come from a big city like Tampa, Florida, or a small town like Deadhorse, Alaska, I can provide that second eye.
