Effective immediately, I’m offering limited availability to new clients. Full-length edits, full manuscript assessments, multiple-round edits, and proofreading are now available for current clients and referrals only. I continue to offer basic copyediting or copyediting plus for short stories and novellas, other editing packages for short nonfiction projects, editorial assessments of the first 25 pages of any manuscript, and other shorter projects to new clients when my schedule allows. Thank you for understanding!
This is a list of books, blogs, and other writing and editing resources for independent authors, including some of the blogs for authors (and by authors) I either follow myself or find myself sharing posts from on a regular basis. I hope you find it useful on your journey!
I love when great clients get great recognition, and I wanted to share this Kirkus review of Paul Samuelson’s The Boys of Earth-180. It’s a space adventure for middle-grade boys, and since I actually have the sense of humor of a middle-grade boy, you can imagine how much I enjoyed myself.
Our cave-dwelling ancestors had to be able to distinguish between grunts that meant “Come look at this” and “Run for your life if you don’t want to get mauled” and “I just saw Crunchy keel over after eating this berry.” And the ones who weren’t able to express themselves clearly lost a lot of friends that day.
