I have just added this link to my webfriends page.
http://indiebooktranslations.com/ … “Have you ever thought about having your book translated? I will tell you why that might be a good idea. And, if you’ve had your book edited by Dave @ EconomyEdits, I’ll even give you a discount!”
Seems like a nice guy looking to help indie writers. Check him out. 🙂
Which means it isn’t the current edit, I guess? Which means that phrase shouldn’t exist? I don’t know. Can’t stop editing. Heh.
But this is such a strong story, such a strong novel, and will be such a strong series. Kudos to MA Leibfritz for Blood & Oil. Quality. I think we’re going to hear a lot about this writer in the coming years.
So what now? Well, for one I’m going to finish reading Michael Connelly’s The Gods of Guilt, then dive straight into Kory M Shrum’s Dying by the Hour.
As for Tuesday, when I would have been returning to B&O, I don’t know whether to bring the final read-thru of GoD forward a week, or spend the time writing what I can of my novel about DeadDenny… hmm… 🙂
Until you learn that yesterday and today have slipped by me in swirls of meetings, queues, broken bikes and new office chairs.
So, because of the hours I put in on Saturday and Sunday, I should still be golden when it comes to completing the edit of G for ND on Sunday. I just need to buckle down and do the hours between now and then.
Yes, I could be editing now, instead of writing this drivel. But it’s an update. Of sorts. 😉
Although, of course, there is an element of play involved. 🙂
But what I mean is…
Late last night I requested and was sent a kindle-friendly copy of the next book I will be editing (from August 18th), so I have a chance to view it as a reader first before tackling as an editor. I did that with the current edit, and think it helps.
Here’s hoping. 🙂
Oh, and I’m currently LOVING working on the the current book, G, and have received nothing but positive replies from the author, who must be one of the more receptive and open writers I’ve ever come across, from a critique-receiving point of view. A joy to work with. 🙂
So, I started working on ‘G’ on Friday, and continued today. Deadline is the 17th.
I’ve got to say… This is such an interesting story full of intriguing ideas, and with a chemistry between the two main characters that positively sizzles.
This is going to be fun. Work. But fun.
In other news, I updated the theme here (what do you think?), and will be linking to my website. Final update as and when. But nothing should change for you lovely people. It just makes me feel like I look more professional. Because, when it comes to the writers I work for, I absolutely am.
