My new thang—editing

So, you’ve got to this point with your novel

and don’t know what to do next. You have just written The End. You want to get a publisher interested, or you want to publish it yourself, but it needs another pair of eyes casting over it first.

What you need is an editor, and that is exactly what I’m thinking of becoming. I can write, I’m pernickety about everything, and I can spot a plot hole a mile off. I’m still thinking this through, setting up a new web site and working out where to advertise. Competitive is the new cheap, so my rates will be competitive—we’re all broke and not many of us are going to make millions out of our books.

I’m offering to edit the first few pages to give you an idea of what you can expect, but bear in mind that I write fantasy, YA, and historical fiction. I’m not your best bet for spy thrillers or erotica. If you think you might be interested, please get in touch through the contact form. If I get a positive response, I’m launched!

Time to jump down that wormhole again

Today, or rather sometime during the night, I received my first round of edits for the first volume of Wormholes. I’m still reeling from the shock of signing the contract. I had wanted to push on with my second Selkie story before I got sucked down the wormhole again, but Tara, Aidan, and Ronan are going to have to wait a while. It’s back to gang warfare in a crumbling shopping mall and the end of days for me for the rest of the summer. With temperatures on an average of 34/35° it’s going to be difficult writing about sub zero levels, but isn’t that what the imagination is for?
