the most wonderful writers

I know I have said it before, but I will say it again…

I edit for the most wonderful writers. I really do. I feel truly blessed.

I sent them all an email today asking if they might have anything wanting an edit in January to April 2015, trying to gauge my schedule, and I already have the following pencil-booked:

2015 

05/01-20/01 … MAL HoO 1st

21/01-31/01 … MBS 1st

02/02-14/02 … JEN v2 final

16/02-28/02 … REB/DS 2

02/03-14/03 … MAL HoO final

15/03-19/04 … ??

20/04-09/05 … MAL BF 1st

10/05-14/06 … ??

15/06-27/06 … REB DS 3

I don’t edit for others as much as I could, because I also like to write my own fiction. And I probably don’t charge as much as I could, but I’m still happy with my rates. The above will provide a liveable income, and possibly even help fund a dream holiday I would like to take to the USA around the end of March/early April. So things are looking decidedly rosy today, and it’s all thanks to these wonderful writers and their amazing imaginations. 🙂

pages requested

One of my writers has been asked by a publisher to submit her entire book. Fingers be crossed. Not that it’s good enough, because I know it is, but more that they are able to see its worth.

 

look out for jasper

Today, I finished the first edit on the third book in Kimberly J Coleman’s WONDERFUL series of books about Jasper and the Munchkins.

Kimberly is currently working on book 2, which should be available here:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Mystery-Mausoleum-Munchkin-Mice-Mysteries/dp/1489553142

Or you can begin with the first tale:

They really are sweet stories full of character, love and learning. Treat yourself. 🙂

 

sub-editing a collection of horror stories

Yes, that’s right. Thanks to a friend of a dear friend, I will now be helping to sub-edit a collection of horror stories. More information will be made available nearer the publication date, which is expected to be around Thanksgiving (in the USA). But I am so looking forward to this. Of course, it does mean that the scheduled re-editing work on my own zombie story has been postponed, but I couldn’t say no. 🙂
