Yes, sir, I do! I'm picky about who I work with, but I'm really cheap. I need to make a little money for my time, but my real purpose is t help make the work the best it can be and help authors succeed. Always happy to have a new client referred to me though. I don't advertise. Word of mouth has kept me steady!

If you know someone who needs editing, feel free to send them my way. I always do a sample edit and I warn folks that sometimes I do refuse editing projects. It's nothing personal--it's a matter of feeling like I'm the right editor for that author or that work. I can edit almost anything, but I'm not always the best editing choice for all genres and styles. To make the writing strongest, sometimes a different editor might be a better choice.




Love and stuff,
Michy

That's good to know. I might need you, heh, heh. I just did a beta read for a book--a first book by a couple. It was a mess and I ended up editing the dang thing for passive, POV shifts, run-ons, adjective/adverbs to the max, transitions, some grammar and everything else you could possibly imagine. And I'm NO editor, but I saw and recognized the most glaring mistakes I've ever seen in a manuscript.

I would not have hooked these people up with you. It was that bad. I was tempted. Contrary to what I told the couple, they went ahead and did a fast edit on it and put out free chapters on a display site. You can see me pulling out my hair now. I told them not to do so until the book was cleansed of the Devil.

Sometimes we can really help a writer. Other times, in one eye and out the other.

Chris! You really need to start grabbing the direct link for your blog posts! You'll never get them indexed if you keep sharing the main link to your blog only!

After a few blog posts, this one will disappear and no one will be able to find it if they come here and click this link.

The direct link is here:

What M is saying is every article you post on your blog has its own address. So if you'd like to share one of your posts, open it, and copy/paste that url specifically. This way, when we click, we are directed straight to the blog post, not the general website.

Wow, that's very strange because this url goes directly to Trilogies and Madness:

http://guerrillawarfareforwriters.blogspot.com/

What are you getting when you click on that? Is it a different blogpost?

I'm clicking on Michy's link and I get the same thing except that the blog title is bolded. I'm going to try some experiments. I'm doing something wrong in bringing up the correct url.

I think I see now. I go to my favorites and pick up Guerrilla Warfare for writers. That takes me to my current blog, but then I have to click on the blog title to bring up the below url. Is that the solution?

Thank you very much for your guidance. I'm not the most literate person when it comes to computers. I stay in my writing files like a hovel.

Thanks, I seem to learn more here than anywhere else.

Your medical advice has helped me too. I'll have some serious questions about that later.

Just finished the entire trilogy and polished it--off to agent. I also finished 288 pages of the thriller, rewrote it and edited it.

A continuation of the last blog post:


What is a Stealth Agent? What is an A-List Agent?

I wrote my Screamcatcher trilogy and sent it off to agent. Just knocked out a NA paranormal, which is really a genre niche and a gamble, but I just had to try it. I didn't do it for the sex--did it for fun and the thrill of some older adults. These four books were written in about seven months--certainly kind of a record for me.

Hi, M. Thanks for the words and support about the illness we share. If I haven't ask you somewhere else (I believe I have) would you provide me with the link to your support group? I need hugs and an uplifted spirit.

Excuse my absence. I've been busy for the last six-seven months. Have written three books and one picture book in that time. I've been buried.


Agent has the final books in the trilogy and they're all edited by her and myself. She's now about to take the package on major sub. I'm a bit nervous, as always, but I'll distract myself by working on my current WIP. Come what may, I'll take it, whether an R & R, a rejection or an offer. I hope it's the later.

I've watched the free movie, Magic Beyond Words, the short film about J.K. Rowling. It is so inspiring to me that I watch it over and over again.
