November Gifts

My first beta experience was with this amazing author... Julie Morgan. You can check her website out here.

I loved her book, Fallen. PS -- it's schedule release date is December 1 and I shall be promoting it here and on facebook! It is a great book and I have already begged asked to beta for the follow up, Redemption.

She asked me to be her assistant at The Novel Experience Event in March, 2014 in Atlanta. Of course I said yes. We are having a blast making all sorts of plans and arrangements. Fun will definitely be had!

So this afternoon, the amazing Julie asked if I wanted to be her assistant at an August 2014 event-- Sin With The Saints. They are working up the website now but I have joined the facebook groups and I have already put in the calendar and I am blogging about it here. 

Excited much?

That would be a hell yeah! That it is in a state that I have not marked off the list is an added bonus! 

What a great early birthday present!

New Beginnings

October 10, 2013 is a normal day.

Your average Thursday.

Granted, I had 5 grants due and it was the beginning of a four day weekend. But average nonetheless.


I decided to pursue a dream.

I started my own freelance editing business. I started a facebook page. You can see it here.

I found a mentor.

I have two references.

One I did beta for on her first novel. The other I am doing beta for on his. He is being grandfathered in. I don't want the new business to step on his work. And I love what I am doing with him.

He said he could be my dress rehearsal.

I loved it!

Today-- after suffering through a horrible migraine yesterday-- I sent out a sample of my contract to an interested party. I have come up with a pricing schedule and joined the Editorial Freelance Association.

Next will be to do some additional marketing. Design some business cards. Get the word out.

I am excited about this new endeavor!
