It’s been a while since I’ve thanked all of the amazing helpers who turn my keystrokes into a completed book. So I thought I’d make a new post of appreciation, just in case there are any authors who’d like to give my service providers a try.
First of all, I’ve added a new step to my editing process — a paid beta read by Claudia King. While she doesn’t list her rates on her website, she’s a whiz at streamlining and smoothing plots and making sure characters stay in character. If you feel like my new series is an engaging, smooth read — that’s all due to Claudia’s hard work.
Of course, I still send my final draft through a copy editor and Chereese Graves is still my nitpicker of choice. She’s fast, affordable, and easy to work with. Highly recommended!
Meanwhile, I’m trying out a new cover artist who I wholeheartedly recommend. Heather Hamilton-Senter worked with me every step of the way to create the exact cover that was floating around in my head, and she’s currently hard at work on creating Ember’s other faces for the additional books in the series.
And, of course, I’d be lost without my kind readers, both early reviewers who notice the last few errors that have slid past everyone else and those of you who read, share, and tell a friend. Thank you so much for reading — you are why I write.
