It took a while to get to this point, but I’ve been hired to edit this science-fiction-based novel, which is my very first book-editing project. I’m very excited about it.
As you can tell, this copy has already been thumbed quite a bit … that’s because the writer got stiffed on her first go-round with a printer, who was supposed to (and was paid to) produce a lot more galley proofs for pre-production use than he did, but that’s a story for another time and another forum.
This novel really is more of a thriller because it’s a very short leap from what’s happening in the world today to what happens in this book — a scarily short leap.
I met the author last fall and am just over halfway through the book now on my first read, and soon after I finish it I’ll be working on the Word files to hone it into a page-turning suspense thriller that you will not be able to put down. We hope to get it published before the end of this year. Stay tuned for more details!
