Welcome to the blog. The reason this blog exists is to detail my adventures in publishing as an editor.
There are a couple of things you need to know: I am a very nice person, but as an editor, sometimes my authors don’t like me because I make them do things like (gasp) kill their darlings. Its not my intention to destroy an author’s opus, but only bad writers don’t see that editing does a manuscript good.
I will chronicle the good, the bad, and the ugly about my thoughts as an editor and out of respect, I will never disclose the names or titles of manuscripts or authors. Instead, I will focus on the broad and often repeated things I see. So rather than put negative gossip out there, this blog will hopefully help aspiring authors by giving you a little taste of what goes through mine and many other editor’s heads.
Buckle up, dear reader, its going to be fun.
