Special project - AUDIO, VIDEO, DISCO

Recently I've had the honor to work closely with the very talented and hardworking first-time author, Joshua Gingras. He reached out to me, and I assured him that I'd be honest and constructive, and lo and behold! He already had something special in the works with this manuscript. And, I have to say, the finished product is inspirational and quite the roller coaster of life.

Check out the blurb for yourself:
AUDIO, VIDEO, DISCO is a socially-anxious comedy that asks, "What leads a person to alienation, and are we allowed to laugh at them?"

Life for the twenty-something college dropout Ernest Scarliffe has sucked. He's stuck in a dead-end job and feels as if no one - not even his family - is there to support him. It leads to a drinking habit that leads to a suicide attempt. 

Upon his release from the hospital, he kindles a bond with the new girl-next-door, an independent artist named Melody, and attempts to connect with his new-distant childhood friend Jon.



Oh, jeez, and the cover art is just amazing! Shout out to the illustrator, Geoffrey Zeiner. 

So check it out! You've got nothing to lose, because guess what? It's free until Friday! After that it'll be priced at only $2.99!

And don't worry, if you don't catch the freebie, I'll be posting a free sample of the first chapter! So stay tuned ...

Keep in mind that Joshua would really enjoy interacting with his readers, so feel free to hit him up on Twitter.

Enjoy, you guys!

It's been a while

Hey everyone!

It's been a while since my last post.

So I thought I'd shout out a fun project I did for I.D Martin.

It's a short story called Dagon's Whisper. Check it out here on Amazon!

Freelance Book Editor

Have a fiction novel or short story that needs a fresh pair of eyes? 


Well, I can help!

I am a freelance editor. I have a BA in English and have studied and worked in publishing. The genres I've edited the most of are sci-fi and horror. Although, I have also edited comedy, urban drama, screenplays, children's book, romance, and memoirs. There are a few books I have edited that have been published on Amazon, and I am also listed as a freelancer with two indie publishing companies.

I am an open-minded individual, so if you have a unique project, I'm confident I can help! Also, if you're looking to develop an author/editor relationship, I am open to giving that a shot, as well. I am laid back, but honest and professional. I am great with deadlines, since I worked at a daily newspaper for a couple of years. So if you need your manuscript finished ASAP, I'm sure we can work out the perfect timeframe. 

It can be difficult to find someone capable and trustworthy to work with, so to start, I can send you some of my previous work and/or I can edit a sample of your work, up to ten pages. Upon your decision, I can edit your manuscript up to three times, if need be.

Cheers!

Freelance Book Editor

I'm an open minded and flexible editor. So whether your story needs developmental adjustments or just a once over, I can help you out. I edit fiction, with genres like sci-fi, horror, erotica, and children's. Although professional, I'm pretty laid back. I work at a fast pace, so if you need your piece edited ASAP, I'm your girl.

Some of the work I've edited can be found here.

You can send me a sample of your writing and I'd edit it through track changes, and we can go from there. If need be, I can edit works up to three time.

Cheers, guys.

Another goodie!

I had the pleasure to work with I.D. Martin again, this time on short, awesome adventure called Dagon's Whisper. Personally, out of all the stories I've edited for Ian, this one is up there with the favorites. It's in first person, and the voice of the narrator has an intriguing edge that pulls you. And, of course, there's blood, violence and betrayal! All at the cheap price of $0.99!

Get it here, guys!

Cheers!
